Lower Manhattan Living
Battery Park City, located on the southernmost tip of Lower Manhattan, is a planned community that has transformed the area into a residential neighborhood.
To the west, residents can enjoy the beautiful Hudson River waterfront, which provides a scenic escape where they can walk along the harbor. There’s even a marina for those who love being out on the water! The surrounding community offers many options for shopping, restaurants and entertainment, and features many cultural events throughout the year.
For trips further than into Manhattan and other parts of New York, easy and quick public transportation is available nearby. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) bus line services the area and a free transport service is provided by the Downtown Alliance as well. In just a short walk, residents have access to numerous subway lines including the A, C, E, N, R, 2, 4, and 5 trains, as well as the Battery Park City Ferry Terminal which provides transportation to New Jersey.
