Battery Park Greenway Professional Review and Guide
"A peaceful yet invigorating feeling imbues Battery Park City, an area bordered by the Hudson River and teeming with high-rise buildings, many of them of fairly recent vintage. Exciting, even intimidating in scale and concentration, much of the neighborhood has a futuristic feel. Its buildings are certainly in striking contrast to the older structures that prevail in the nearby Financial District (see next walk). “BPC” also has the busy and bold World Financial Center, full of shops and offices, exhibition space, and public sculpture."
