Battery Park

Neighborhood Image

Battery Park City is a 92-acre planned community created with ladfill on the Hudson River. More than a third of the neighborhood consists of parks and open spaces. Although the developed neighborhood is a mere 55 years old, it is populated with residential buildings that are removed from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. At night, the streets are some of the quietest and safest the city has to offer.
