AmNY on Battery Park City's Appeal

AmNewYork recently published an article entitled: "Battery Park City bursting with parks, new restaurants and residential towers".

And it is! We've written about some of these before. (Restaurants, Parks)

The article touches on what makes the area special: Its sense of calmness within the bustling city, how  kid-friendly it is, its proximity to parks, to the financial district and to fantastic food fare.

Here are a few quotes:

  • "surrounded by the Hudson River and more than a third of its 92 acres dedicated to parkland, it seems quieter than the rest of the borough."
  • "Today, families with small children are attracted to all it has to offer, as a walk along the scenic riverfront promenade or visit to one of the area’s many parks will attest to. 'I have two small children, and this neighborhood is very kid-friendly.'
  • "Years ago … it felt like it wasn’t really connected to the rest of Manhattan. But all that’s changed. People are clamoring to live here now.”
