Neighborhood Description

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.

Battery Park 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.)

The neighborhood consists of more than twenty luxury apartment buildings, ranging from twenty to forty-five stories and almost all done in identical brick. The buildings tend to have large windows with amazing views over the harbor, the Statue of Liberty and the rest of downtown Manhattan.

The luxury buildings have multiple benefits- elevators, laundry, doormen, and the most coveted asset in New York apartments: space. Some additionally have gyms and roof decks, where residents lay out and soak in the views in the summer months. 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.

Apartments in the neighborhood are great for families that want a bit more space, for people working in the financial district, and for people who really put a premium on views. (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.) It has a much more residential feeling than the financial district, which is why it is an ideal spot to raise a family and still be close to work for Wall Street’s titans.

One of Battery Park’s highlights is its proximity to the water; beautifully landscaped grounds run all the way up the West Side. The West Side bike path also originates in Battery Park City, making it easy for commuters to get to work on their bicycles. Though Battery Park may not be hopping at night, there are a few hidden gems there. For delicious aperitifs and live jazz, check out The Silver Lining, an underground den with a baby grand and excellent mixology. In nearby Tribeca, try the legendary Japanese restaurant Nobu, where among your miso cod and tuna rolls, you might catch a glimpse of a Hollywood celeb.

Be forewarned though...the subway can be a hike. To get to the subway, many people utilize the several walking bridges that extend over the West Side Highway into the Financial District.
