Battery Park City
Battery Park City is a neighborhood located in Lower Manhattan, New York City, situated on the southern tip of Manhattan Island. It is a planned community built on land that was created by landfill in the 1970s and 1980s, using soil and rocks excavated during the construction of the World Trade Center. The neighborhood is bounded by the Hudson River to the west, the World Trade Center to the north, and the Financial District to the east and south. Battery Park City is known for its high-rise residential buildings, waterfront parks, and scenic views of the Hudson River and New York Harbor. Battery Park City is home to several notable landmarks, including the World Financial Center (now known as Brookfield Place), a large commercial complex that houses offices, shops, and restaurants, as well as the Winter Garden Atrium, a glass-enclosed public space with palm trees and a waterfront view.
