Battery Park City is probably the closest thing to a "suburban" lifestyle that Manhattan has to offer. Because of its relative newness, Battery Park City is more in-tune with the sensibilities of the modern urban dweller, boasting trees and river views along the Hudson River esplanade that offer a bit of nature to its residents. The bustling neighborhood quiets at night, offering residents the qualities of suburban living with the conveniences of living in close proximity to the amenities of urban life.
Located on the western most tip of Lower Manhattan, close to the Financial District and other Manhattan landmarks of commerce and knowledge, Battery Park City has much to offer to Wall Street aficionados and young families alike. Community hotspots include a public swimming pool, and tennis and basketball courts at Stuyvesant High School, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, Wagner Park, Battery Park and the Hudson River esplanade.
