Perfect for the resident that wants an empty and quiet area at night, loves old world charm, including some of New York’s most historical buildings and wants delivery food service straight from Chinatown. Although there is some construction in this area (so many office buildings have already been converted from empty office space to living space) the payoff is more park space as the waterfront around Battery Park City is developed. Post 9/11 prices dropped and there is still the opportunity to get more bang for your buck.
Battery Park is located at the tip of Manhattan. The biggest draw to living in this area is the view—the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, New Jersey, Brooklyn and a convergence of the Hudson, East River and New York Bay. Luxury highrises pepper the shoreline as do some older industrial buildings that have been preserved for their history and elegance.
Being so close to the Financial District, Staten Island Ferry, the Battery Tunnel, the West Side Highway and the FDR Drive makes it an extremely high-traffic area and generally a hubbub of activity.
Great for children and pets, this area is one of the best for those seeking to have views and outdoor activity close by.
