Battery Park City History

Once the home of container shipping and seaport traffic, Battery Park City is among one of the newest neighborhoods of New York.  It was originally conceived in the 1960s as an urban revitalization plan, but it was not until 1979 that the city planners created what we now know as Battery Park.  The area began as a simple landfill for the original World Trade Center; however, after the events of 9/11, the neighborhood received immense support from the Battery Park Conservancy and City Authority in an effort to revitalize such a contemporary part of American history.

The Neighborhood

This serene neighborhood offers quiet parks, scenic routes, and an immaculate upkeep similar to that of a suburb.  Battery Park City contains a mix of mostly high-rise and some low-rise buildings, many of which were built between the 1980s and 1990s.  There is approximately 30 acres of green space along the lovely waterfront giving this unique neighborhood its widely sought after laid-back, yet active vibe.  As a resident, you’ll find the outdoor seating areas filled with people enjoying lunch from food trucks or other quick options like Shake Shack on Murray Street.

Battery Park City Lifestyle

Beyond the outdoor appeal, such as the draw of Rockefeller Park, BPC boasts the suburban lifestyle while still remaining easily accessible from the 1,2, 3 trains, and the R line.  Unlike the other NYC neighborhoods, BPC residents find homes in luxury high-rise condos or rental buildings, many offering concierge services, top-of-the -line gyms, and parking garages.
