Built atop earth reclaimed from a number of New York City excavation projects, in 1976, the construction of Battery Park City forever changed the layout of Lower Manhattan and created a residential enclave unlike any other in the city. Bounded by West Street to the east and by the Hudson River to the south, west and north, this 92-acre planned community boasts stunning river views and unparalleled park space. On warm weather weekends, the waterfront lawns and sidewalks of this family-friendly neighborhood are filled with residents eager to enjoy the ample outdoor activities the area affords.
Here, you'll find high-rise condominium homes constructed between 1983 and 2011 with most buildings offering modern, luxury amenities including doormen, fitness centers and play rooms. Battery Park City's proximity to the Financial District and World Trade Center make it an ideal outpost for downtown commuters. Residents enjoy peaceful, leafy surroundings, with an easy separation the hustle and bustle of city living.
