Battery Park City
An innovative waterfront community in Lower Manhattan filled with parks, museums and public art
Located on the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan, Battery Park City is an oasis for residents and visitors alike. Its open green spaces are dotted with innovative public art projects and provide excellent views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Along with its wide collection of public art, the park is also home to the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the Irish Hunger Memorial, and the North Cove Marina.
The park's landscaped space is conducive to a variety of outdoor activities. The waterfront promenade is ideal for strolling, running, biking, and skating and photography. Well-maintained lawns are perfect for sunbathing and picnicking. For more active visitors, soccer, baseball and softball fields are available via the Battery Park City Conservancy.
Built on landfill from the construction of the original World Trade Center, Battery Park City has a mix of residential buildings throughout the public park. On the forefront of community planning, the neighborhood is the location of the first "green" residential high rise in the city.
