Welcome to Battery Park

Battery Park is the only neighborhood in New York bordered on three sides by water, affording a high degree of privacy, quiet, and sweeping, unobstructed views of the most iconic waterway in the world.

Settled by the Dutch in the early 17th century, Battery Park is one of the oldest neighborhoods in America and is peppered with historic buildings. The area was expanded through land reclamation in the late 20th century, which gave rise to the modern developments it’s known for today.

Battery Park is largely a planned community and Battery Park real estate is comprised of many high-end housing opportunities centered around convenience. While most Manhattan residents have to shoehorn their modern lifestyle into buildings erected decades ago, the residential towers of Battery Park were recently constructed with contemporary needs in mind.
