Battery Park City
With over a third of the neighborhood being designated as parkland, Battery Park City is a tranquil community known for its lush greenery, suburban vibe, and scenic waterfront esplanade. The 92 acre neighborhood was built through a land reclamation project in the 1970’s and has quickly become one of the most modern and luxurious neighborhoods in New York City. In recent years the neighborhood has benefited from the renovation and expansion of Brookfield Place as well as the construction of a passageway linking it to the new World Trade Center complex. While its abundance of green spaces and its stunning riverfront setting make it great for lovers of the outdoors, families and pet owners alike, there are no subway stops within the neighborhood’s boundaries and there is little in the way of nightlife. That being said, the nearest subway stop is only a 5-10 minute walk away as is neighboring Tribeca, with its posh entertainment scene.
