Did you know that of the 92 acres that make up Battery Park City, a whole 36 acres is parkland? As the nation's first LEED certified high rise rental, we're pretty proud to be located in the greenest corner of Manhattan! With so many parks to choose from, it's not easy picking favorites but we've highlighted three of the most unique public parks in the neighborhood. Did we miss your favorite? Tell us in the comments.

1. Teardrop Park

One of the best-kept secret spaces in the neighborhood, this tiny 1.8-acre park is tucked away right next to The Verdesian. Once you find one of the hidden winding paths that lead from our high rise to Teardrop Park, you'll find yourself in an urban sanctuary like no other. This park has won awards for its landscape and for good reason--features include an architectural marvel of a rock wall, a giant silver slide leading into sandpit, and a water-play area that feels just like a natural spring. Many places in New York claim to be perfect escapes from the city but Teardrop Park will make you feel it.

2. Nelson A. Rockerfeller Park

Located right across from The Verdesian is Nelson A. Rockefeller Park, a waterfront enclave with the most unique play structures in the city. The self-propelled merry-go-round and big red bouncing grid are kid-favorites but the interconnected wooden walkways and bridges make this park a playground for grownups too. Be sure to keep an eye out for Tom Otterness' beloved whimsical sculptures around the park like Rolling Penny (above) and The Real World. There's no better depiction of our city bustle.

3. Robert F. Wagner Park

Speaking of city bustle, Robert Wagner Park is next to one of the most popular tourist areas in Battery Park City but feels several worlds away. Once you slip past the crowds waiting for boats to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, you'll find yourself in a lush 25-acre park lined with tranquil walkways through gardens and open lawns. Neighborhood residents know the south pavilion of the park leads to a public roof deck that gives you the best views of Lady Liberty--minus the crowds. The park is also home to the wonderful Museum of Jewish Heritage, currently featuring Andy Goldsworthy's Garden of Stones--the perfect art to take in on green escape in Battery Park City.
