Welcome to Battery Park City

A family-friendly and quiet neighborhood gem in Lower Manhattan
 
Located between the Hudson River and the Westside Highway of Manhattan, the Battery Park City district is a beautiful gem tucked at the very bottom of the city. This family-friendly neighborhood is relatively quiet and features unobstructed views of the Hudson in soaring apartment towers. The area is home to wonderful outdoor recreational opportunities, delicious restaurants, and diverse cultural experiences.
 
In the late 1920s, the area of Battery Park City underwent a large redevelopment process after uncovering sunken docks, ships, and bulkheads along the water. The redevelopment of the residential areas began shortly after this discovery and lasted through the 1970s, with high-rise residential buildings expanding in the 1980s. Battery Park City has seen enormous growth since then, adding additional commercial space and more affordable housing options for residents.

What to Love

Local Lifestyle

More than one-third of Battery Park City is greenspace. Residents of this neighborhood enjoy time spent outside either walking through the park or strolling along the Hudson. The family-friendly neighborhood doesn’t have a metro station, allowing the area to experience a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Midtown Manhattan in favor of a more laid-back atmosphere. The area resembles a well-designed college campus and sees plenty of families on bikes enjoying the “suburban” feel of this neighborhood within a large city. Battery Park City has dozens of trendy restaurants around every corner and plenty of opportunities for community events and local shopping.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Take a stroll to Sant Ambroeus at Brookfield Place for a morning cappuccino and a soft, freshly-baked pastry or a delicately fluffy omelet. This fashionable Italian restaurant offers delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner options and features a unique (and extensive) cocktail list. Sant Ambroeus hopes to bring quality food and conversation to the residents of Manhattan, expanding their restaurants to five locations throughout the city. It’s an ideal spot for a morning treat with your family or an evening out with friends!
 
Make a reservation at the Michelin star restaurant L’Appart. This upscale restaurant gives New York residents a truly unique experience, as Chef Nico creates an intimate dining experience in this “apartment.” The decor is reminiscent of an old-world New York penthouse, with a large dining room for dinner guests. The kitchen is open, allowing you to be fully immersed in every moment of your meal’s creation. Chef Nico greets each guest and makes each individual feel like they are participating in a dinner party at his home. Their rotating menu features full caviar service, foie gras appetizers, Colorado lamb with heirloom tomato compote and honey as an entree option, and a mouthwatering fig pastry for dessert.  
 
Located along the Hudson, PJ Clarke’s Restaurant and Bar has been a community staple since 1884. Seeing its fair share of celebrities since then (Nat King Cole proclaimed that PJ's bacon cheeseburger was the “Cadillac of burgers!” and Frank Sinatra was known to close the place down on several occasions). Rich in history, full of energy, and loaded with a fantastic menu, PJ Clarke’s is a “can’t miss” restaurant for residents and tourists alike. Try their highly recommended bacon cheeseburger or country chicken pot pie, and stay for one of their eclectic cocktails. 

Brookfield Place is a premier shopping center on 14 acres in a 5-building complex. Featuring some of the world’s most innovative shops and restaurants, Brookfield Place is a celebrated destination for residents and tourists alike and offers both indoor and open-air shopping options. Enjoy lunch along the Hudson at one of many cafe options, and indulge in an upscale, luxury shopping experience. A few of their shops include Club Monaco, Gucci, Untuckit, and Tory Burch. Brookfield Place also hosts events, art exhibits, fashion shows, and workshops throughout the year.

Things to Do

The South Street Seaport Museum preserves the history of New York City as a primary port. The museum includes artwork, artifacts, a full reference library, a working 19th-century print shop, and historic vessels to showcase the city’s origins. They offer public concerts, wine tastings, and private events hosted on their historic vessels in the harbor and feature tours of New York’s oldest operating business, Browne and Co. 

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum is located at the site of the World Trade Center on Greenwich Street. The memorial and museum tell the story of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States through media, personal narratives, and authentic artifacts. The museum features public programs for visitors, special programs designed for children, and professional development opportunities for educators. The mission of the memorial and museum is to honor the lives lost in 2001 and 1993 and provide resources for the public to continue their stories.
