Battery Park City is the latest addition to a number of Manhattan neighborhoods, located at the southwestern tip of Lower Manhattan. While relatively new, the neighborhood’s history is unlike any other. It sits upon millions of cubic yards of excavated soil and rock from the construction of the original World Trade Center and the New York City Water Tunnel.
Some of the city’s best parklands, waterfront views, and sunsets are offered in Battery Park City, where the growth of modern luxury homes has added an upscale family-oriented feeling to this cutting-edge neighborhood of LEED-certified housing. An almost suburban feeling encompasses the area despite its close proximity to the Financial District, where shops and restaurants are abound. The safe streets and well-maintained parks make this area ideal for spending time outside and raising children.
