Battery Park City apartments have great views but look like they were all part of one centrally planned development, because in large part they were. The neighborhood consists of more than twenty apartment buildings, ranging from 20 to 45 stories and almost all done in an identical orange brick. The buildings tend to have large windows with amazing views over the harbor, Statue of Liberty and the rest of downtown Manhattan.
The apartments have the amenities that the rest of Manhattan envies. They are all elevator buildings, with in-building laundry and doormen. Some have common roof decks. While it's a bit removed from the rest of Manhattan, the buildings make up for it by having their own in-house dry cleaners and small food shops.
The neighborhood is located at the southern tip of Manhattan on the west side. It's a planned community built upon the dirt and rock excavated during the construction of the World Trade Center. The neighborhood gets its name because of its proximity to a park by the same name, an area that once housed Dutch artillery used to protect Manhattan. (SAT Quiz: Battery = a fortified emplacement for heavy guns.)
Apartments in the neighborhood are great for families that want a bit more space, for people working in the financial district and for people that really put a premium on views. Unfortunately, these apartments are not for people looking to live in the “it” neighborhood.
Generally, monthly rents are slightly lower than the neighborhoods nearby, especially Tribeca. In addition, the average Battery Park City apartment is significantly larger, has better views and amenities like a doorman, washer/dryer or rooftop. Studio apartments range from $2400-$2800 per month. One bedroom apartments in Battery Park range from $3300-$3600 per month. Two bedroom Battery Park City apartments range from $5300-$5700 per month. Three bedroom apartments range from $7000-$8000 per month.
No fee Battery Park City apartments are easier to find than other NYC neighborhoods. Since there are a limited number of buildings and landlords, it’s pretty easy for a renter to get a feel for the neighborhood prices and inventory by looking online at either aggregation sites like Naked Apartments or working directly with the landlords on their sites.
The neighborhood is bounded by West Street on the East, and the Hudson river on the North, South and West. Because it is surrounded by water on three sides, many apartments in the neighborhood have awesome views of the Hudson River, New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty and Jersey City. In addition, a significant amount of parkland, donated during the creation of the city, surrounds the area.
