Battery Park City

Battery Park City runs from Vesey St. to Canal St., South to North; Broadway to Hudson River, East to West

Battery Park City sits west of the highway along the Hudson River. It contains a mix of mostly high-rise and some low-rise buildings, many of which were built between the 1980’s to the more recent years. There are approximately 30 acres of green space along the beautiful waterfront, as well as a storied public school (Stuyvesant High School), playgrounds, restaurants, shops and entertainment including the Wintergarden Mall and Regal Multiplex cinema. The 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and R subway lines are all accessible; several pedestrian bridges connect Battery Park City to the Financial District, as do a few bus lines that travel within its boundaries.

Adjacent to Tribeca and the Financial District, Battery Park City is a green enclave, which some have described as an oasis in the city. It offers stunning waterfront views, green spaces, and winding paths among towering full-service buildings, in addition to world-class shops and restaurants. Most recently, Danny Meyer’s North End Grill, opened in the neighborhood, joining other popular spots including Blue Smoke, Shake Shack, and Umami Burger.
