Battery Park City is located in the southwest of Manhattan island. It was built in the 80s through a land reclamation project on the Hudson River. Due to its safe nature and privileged location, it is home to big companies like American Express, Goldman Sachs and Deloitte. People that live in this neighborhood often seek a balance between the stress of the big apple and necessary doses of tranquility. Battery Park City is ideal for those who value tranquility and a slow, easy life more than the hustle-bustle of Manhattan. There is always something to keep you entertained in Battery Park City, but if it is peace & quiet that you are after, you can get that too by enjoining a solitary evening watching a sunset on the banks of the Hudson River or a dinner with a view of the Statue of Liberty. If you're passionate about sailing, sign up for summer classes at Yacht Harbor at the North Cove. South Cove Park and Robert F Wagner Jr. Park that surround the Hudson River have become the most enjoyable places in Battery Park City. At Pier 25, there is enough to entertain your whole team ranging from mini-golf and gardens, to sailboat access and restaurants.
