Located on the southernmost tip of Manhattan's West Side and just a short walk uptown from the Financial District, Battery Park City sits on 92 of the most scenic acres in all of New York real estate. A ribbon of beautiful green space over a mile long, Battery Park City is home to an abundance of kid- and pet-friendly parks, a long, lovely riverfront on the Hudson River, and peerless views of the Statue of Liberty. It is also home to some of the most elegant apartments for rent in lower Manhattan.
While all of these residences offer brilliant river views, copious amenities and sun-filled well-appointed rental apartments, they also something else -- sustainability. While the apartments for rent in Battery Park City are luxurious, many of the new construction apartment buildings in Battery Park City are among the greenest rental buildings in New York. The Verdesian, on North End Avenue, was the first residential building in Manhattan to earn LEED Platinum honors; its neighbor on North End Avenue, Tribeca Green, is also strikingly sustainable. River Terrace boasts another pair of sustainable rental buildings in Solaire and 22 River Terrace. The Gateway Plaza, at the southern end of Battery Park City, is an older, but equally elegant, rental building.
While each building has its own character and aesthetic, all of the apartment towers in Battery Park City provide the same broader selling points -- a unique and lovely location in a city-within-a-city, but just a short walk from the business hub of the Financial District and near virtually every subway line in the city. Upscale hotels and shopping, as well as a large yacht harbor on the Hudson River known as North Cove Marina, provide additional diversions. Both a charming respite from the buzz of New York City life and blessed with a location that puts the best of the city within easy reach, Battery Park City is one of the most unique and livable neighborhoods in Manhattan, and home to some of New York City's most desirable rental apartments.
