Battery Park City

Riverfront promenades and the best view of the Statue of Liberty in NYC.

This clean and quiet corner of Manhattan flaunts water views from the rooftops of luxurious high-rise condos. Battery Park City, with its numerous parks, plazas, and esplanades, feels like a suburban oasis amid the clamor of city life. Wall Street movers and shakers walk briskly through Battery Park City from Monday to Friday, but this refined neighborhood generally goes silent after the market’s closing bell has rung. For night owls, hotspots like Tribeca are nearby.

Battery Park City is within Manhattan and bordered by Financial District and Tribeca

As of October 2014, the M9, M20, M22 bus lines service parts of Battery Park City, with the M15, M15 SBS nearby at Battery Park. Additionally, the Downtown Alliance provides a free bus service that runs along North End Avenue and South End Avenue, connecting the various residential complexes with subway stations on the other side of West Street.
There is currently no New York City Subway access in Battery Park City proper; however, the West Street pedestrian bridges, as well as crosswalks across West Street, connect Battery Park City to subway stations and the PATH station in the nearby Financial District. A tunnel from Brookfield Place under West Street also provides access from Battery Park City to the World Trade Center PATH station. The Battery Park City Ferry Terminal is at the foot of Vesey Street opposite the New York Mercantile Exchange and provides ferry transportation to various points in New Jersey.

Financial District

A fast-paced 9-to-5 icon of business acumen.

High-rises, high prices, and high blood pressures are common in NYC’s famous Financial District. This financial epicenter's looming buildings bankroll it as one of the city's most recognizable neighborhoods. Financial District may rush by at lightning-speed during the day, but once the last fast-talking mogul leaves for the evening this neighborhood quickly quiets down.

Financial District is within Manhattan and bordered by Battery Park City, South Street Seaport, Tribeca, Civic Center, and Chinatown
