  what's this neighborhood like?

Battery Park City is a planned neighborhood of sleek high rises overlooking the Hudson River in downtown Manhattan. It has a secluded, quiet atmosphere but is only steps to the Financial District, which makes it a popular home for those working in the vicinity of Wall Street. Residents speak of the small-town vibe where "all the parents know all the kids". There are two synthetic-turf athletic fields used for baseball, softball, kickball, Frisbee, soccer, football, and lacrosse (mostly for children's use, although adults are welcome as well). A number of public parks provide grassy areas to soak up the sun on a warm day or just people watch.

The neighborhood has a number of cafes and restaurants, grocery stores and markets, and a shopping cinema with a food court and cinemas. The rich and powerful moor their boats at the neighborhood's North Cove Yacht Harbor, where you can also take sailing lessons.

Tribeca and the Financial District are just next door when you want to venture out of the area and a ferry service can whisk you across the river to New Jersey.

Battery Park City is bordered on the north by Tribeca, on the east by the Financial District, and on the south and west by the Hudson River.
