Battery Park City

A Suburban Oasis Right in Manhattan
Battery Park City, named for the adjacent park, is one of the quietest and safest neighborhoods in New York City. Its casual eateries and Happy Hours attract professionals during the workweek, and the Brookfield Place shopping center, waterfront bike paths, and park strolls give the area a suburban feel during the weekend. While Battery Park City likes to sleep at night, it does boast popular attractions like the 9/11 Memorial and Trinity Church. The views during sunrise and sunset are breathtaking, so don't miss out!

This primarily residential neighborhood is a great place for families and pet owners. The upkeep and in-house amenities of its luxurious condos and apartment towers make the higher price tag worth it. Escape the tourists and chaos of Midtown and Lower Manhattan in the scenic and well-maintained Battery Park City.

Battery Park City — 7.5/10 Rating (based on 2 neighborhood reviews)
Battery Park City is an amazing place for families, pet owners, and people who love being able to go for a run in NYC. It feels incredibly safe at pretty much all times. That said, the social scene is somewhat lacking as the area generally dies down at night and it's very hard to convince people to go out in Battery Park City relative to other neighborhoods.

Tribeca Pointe
Lots of open space and beautiful runs/walks along the water. Good restaurants, shopping, and a movie theatre, but not a huge bar / social scene.
