Financial District residences, including Battery Park City, are relatively quiet and peaceful. The daytime, of course, is filled with the bustle of business and the area tends to attract residents who also work downtown. On weekends, they tend to gather at Battery Park or South Street Seaport. This part of town offers majestic river and city views and the luxury apartment complexes offer the most modern of amenities. Battery Park City is a huge draw to families with its almost suburban feel. While it suffered a temporary setback after September 11, this area is once again flourishing and often space is relatively affordable as the area continues to encourage residents back downtown. Truly one of the most spectacular places in New York City, the Financial District, with the Seaport and Battery Park City at its sides, is a treasured gem.
