The Neighborhood of Battery Park City
Imagine a place that is just a short walking distance to the busy streets of the Financial District where your one stroll away from the overwhelming density of FiDi ,which encompasses New York City landmarks like the historic New York Stock Exchange, the World Trade Center Station with it’s luxury shopping, and the visually rustic St. Paul’s Chapel.
Perhaps history and shopping isn’t your thing and you just prefer to sit back and down a pint of beer. That’s where the Stone Street History District comes into play where many financiers head to for a drink and dinner after work. However, if you prefer serenity on the weekends and after work hours, Battery Park City is by far one of the most unique neighborhoods that New York has to offer. With one-third parkland, and a view of the Hudson River and the ever impressive Jersey City, it’s hard not to boast about this area.
Sitting modestly with 13,300 residents, this neighborhood has seen substantial growth over the decades. Going back to 1983, the first residential building constructed in Battery Park City was the “Gateway Plaza”. Other notable buildings are Millennium Point, The Solaire, Hudson Tower, The Regatta, Ritz Carlton Residence, and The Visionaire. With only a handful of schools, Battery Park City is host to Stuyvesant High School, which is considered to be one of the top tier high schools in New York City. This area is also not short on celebrities, with the likes of Kris Humphries from the NBA, Dave Gahan from the famous pop group Depeche Mode, TV personality Tyra Banks, and award winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Not only do you have a great school district and the Hudson River on demand, don’t be surprised to find yourself sipping a Penicillin cocktail next to DiCaprio every so often.
