Parks / Recreation:
Battery Park provides easy access to its namesake park, located just south of the neighborhood. Within its borders you’ll find acres of open space, with plenty of green grass along the waterfront, community ball fields and more.

 

Landmarks / History:
Construction began on Battery Park in the late 1970s, so you won’t find a lot of old, venerated architecture. You will find Stuyvesant High School, the World Financial Center and the Museum of Jewish Heritage.


Battery Park began life as a blank slate: a 30-plus acre man-made peninsula built with construction landfill in the 1960s. Managed by a public interest corporation, the planned neighborhood grew to become one of Lower Manhattan’s most livable spots, with mixed use buildings, plenty of parks and excellent public schools.

 

Area Scene:
Many people classify Battery Park as curiously suburban, and for good reason. Its great apartments and schools attract many young families, and its recent architecture and large shopping malls set it apart from Manhattan’s standard urbanity. However, cultural events at the World Financial Center and the Esplanade make Battery Park a happening place.
