Tucked between the Financial District and the Hudson River, Battery Park City bustles with professionals during the day, but turns quiet and peaceful at night. The Battery Park City Esplanade runs along the waterfront. Battery Park City feels removed from the hustle and bustle of Lower Manhattan. Residents embrace the neighborhood’s peaceful environment, and can often be found running, biking and strolling along its waterfront esplanade.
Battery Park, the green space at the lower tip of Manhattan, is a residential neighborhood that features soaring apartment towers and plenty of recreational space. Among its attractions are the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the Irish Hunger Memorial. Major downtown destinations like the 9/11 Memorial and Trinity Church are nearby. Visitors can shop in Brookfield Place, an upscale mall that includes a food court with offerings from some of the City’s top chefs, and take in picturesque waterfront views while strolling through Hudson River Park.
