Battery Park City

Battery Park City

Battery Park City was planned as a residential community for World Trade Center and Wall Street workers, but these uniquely green 92 acres along the Hudson River at the lower tip of Manhattan have taken on a character all their own. Few Manhattan neighborhoods are more family friendly -- parks and playgrounds abound, there¿¿¿s a lovely riverfront esplanade, and Stuyvesant High School, generally considered Manhattan¿¿¿s finest public high school, is located in Battery Park City. The greener-than-usual feel of Battery Park City also extends to its numerous new green condominiums. Battery Park City is an uncommonly sedate and undeniably lovely Manhattan neighborhood -- so sedate and lovely, in fact, that it sometimes feels as if it¿¿¿s not in Manhattan at all.
