Battery Park City Neighborhood Guide

Who says they don’t make land anymore? This 92-acre appendage to the Hudson River side of Lower Manhattan has been built up as a planned community on city landfill since 1980. Think of it as that new suburban division - except that it is still in the city. The West Side Highway that once hugged the shoreline now turns the neighborhood into its own island on the island. Battery Park City may not serve up the heritage of its nearly 400-year old neighbors but the developers have also been able to pick and choose the residential amenities that work best in Manhattan from lessons learned. Expect your usual suburban crowd here - plenty of families (over half the population) and also retirees drawn to the quiet streets hard by the attractions of the city.

Architecture and landmarks

Battery Park City is not a destination for architectural historians - the oldest building is Gateway Plaza on Sound End Avenue that dates all the way back to 1983. The dirt that supports BPC came from the hole excavated in the 1970s for the first World Trade Center and these days the neighborhood landmark is One World Trade Center - the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building at a symbolic 1,776 feet. The centerpiece of Battery Park City is the shopping and office-center complex originally dubbed the World Financial Center but which has lately been known as Brookfield Place. Despite the freshness of the community there is a remembrance of early New York, for instance the Irish Hunger Memorial - painstakingly crafted with stones from all of the counties in Ireland - was dedicated in 2002; it also features a reconstructed 19th century cottage from the Emerald Isle.

Battery Park City’s building inventory supports its illusion of being an in-town suburb – there are just six office buildings and one mixed-use building. Retail units are bunched into complexes like 101 Warren and Goldman Alley, the home of Goldman Sachs. They serve as the equivalent of the community’s “main streets.” The residential properties are split between condos (3,778 units) and rentals (4,054 units).

Transport

No subways course under the landfill but the No. 1 train stops conveniently at Chambers Street, Rector Street and South Ferry a couple blocks to the east. The Downtown Alliance operates a free shuttle service beginning at 10:00 in the morning and running until 7:30 p.m. - there are 37 stops around Lower Manhattan.

Schools

Elementary and middle school students make the short jaunt to Public School 89/Intermediate School 89 and Battery Park City School (PS/IS 276). Stuyvesant High School on Chambers Street casts a wider net - each year 27,000 students from all five boroughs takes exams hoping to snare one of the roughly 950 slots in the tuition-free liberal arts high school. Started in 1904, the school moved into a $150 million, ten-story building in Battery Park City in 1992.

Health

Lower Manhattan Hospital, located at Beekman and Gold Streets in the Financial District, serves the neighborhoods at the southern tip of the island, including Battery Park City. It has been doing so in one form or another since 1853 and today is a teaching hospital of New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Safety

Battery Park City is part of the 1st Precinct, with 21.68 crimes per 1,000 people in 2015.

Things to do

Things to do

If it is family-oriented you can do it in Battery Park City. The Battery Park City Parks Conservancy keeps a crowded calendar of activities throughout the year. BPC is a water-lover’s paradise with the North Cove Marina that is used by the Manhattan Sailing School to run the largest “floating classroom” in the city.

Things to do

More than one-third of Battery Park City’s 92 acres are given over to parkland. This includes the Esplanade that traces the Hudson River shoreline the entire length of the neighborhood for just over one mile. Nelson A. Rockefeller Park is the largest of the pocket parks, with an imaginative playground that is a magnet for neighborhood kids. There is also a Children’s Garden and Lily Pond. Teardrop Park is a combination sculpture and play garden. The BPC Ball Fields provide space for softball, lacrosse, kickball, soccer, ultimate Frisbee and just about any game you can dream up.

Things to do

As expected, dining options tend to be family oriented and night life is typically sought in neighboring Tribeca and the Financial District. Culture is creeping into the neighborhood - The Poets House at 10 River Terrace is considered the nation’s top independent library of verse with over 60,000 volumes. The Museum of Jewish Heritage opened in 1997 with over 25,000 items to tell the story of modern Jewish history. There’s also quite a thriving public art scene to enjoy while taking a stroll through BPC.
