This clean and quiet corner of Manhattan flaunts water views from the rooftops of luxurious high-rise condos. Battery Park City, with its numerous parks, plazas, and esplanades, feels like a suburban oasis amid the clamor of city life.

For night owls, hotspots like Tribeca are nearby.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
