The Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority (the “Authority”) is a public benefit corporation created in 1968 by the New York State Legislature to be responsible for planning, developing and maintaining the residential, commercial, parks and open space located along the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan in New York City (the “City”). Home to 16,000 people, the work place of 40,000 more, and visited by more than a half-million people each year, New York’s Battery Park City is an asset to both the State and City.
According to the Battery Park City Master Plan of 1979, Battery Park City was envisioned not to be a self-contained community, but rather a neighborhood woven into our city’s fabric. Through its contributions, the Authority is deeply committed to the mission of providing resources for the good of neighborhoods across the five boroughs.
The commitment to sustainability is deeply ingrained in the Authority, which has implemented sustainable horticultural and maintenance practices throughout the parks system for decades, the first “Green Guidelines” for new residential construction were issued in 2000 to establish a process that is for the creation of environmentally responsible buildings, and the Board and management of the Authority remains committed to encouraging and pursuing resiliency and environmental sustainability among its top priorities.
Through its layout and geographic orientation, Battery Park City is an intentionally knitted extension of the City’s streets and blocks. The names of streets heading east and west are purposely the same as those on the opposite side of West Street. Battery Park City was never considered an addition to New York City, but rather, a continuation of this dynamic City’s development into the 21st century.
The Battery Park City Authority (BPCA) today released its first-ever, scientific study of the use of Battery Park City’s 36 acres of parks and public spaces, an effort aimed at helping BPCA meet the challenges of maintaining the high level of satisfaction that its park users enjoy. The BPCA Parks User Count & Study, conducted by Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) researchers and students between July 2017 and June 2018, included statistical counts, surveys by a random sampling of parks users, and focus groups resulting in a bevy of data from a range of users – local residents, visitors from other New York communities, local office employees, and tourists (domestic and international); from those who were experiencing their first visit to others who have been enjoying the parks for 35 years. The Study’s findings confirm that Battery Park City parks are extremely successful in providing an attractive and safe environment for a varied array of user populations.

BPC BALLFIELDS RESILIENCY (Early Design in progress)
Independent and permanent flood barrier system along eastern, northern and southern borders of the Ballfields and Community Center
WEST BPC RESILIENCY (Design RFP 2019)
Continuous flood barrier to create a new line of protection along the water’s edge that will create the final part of the area's protection, connecting to the North and South
SOUTH BPC RESILIENCY (Early Design in progress)
Continuous flood barrier from the Museum of Jewish Heritage, through Wagner Park, Pier A Plaza, and along the northern border of Historic Battery Park
With construction scheduled to begin in 2020 and end in 2023, Battery Park City is committed to constructing a a perimeter storm and flood protection system on its northern boundary. This structure will decrease vulnerability from storm inundation and flooding.
With construction scheduled to begin in 2019 and end in 2022, Battery Park City is committed to constructing a a perimeter storm and flood protection system on its southern boundary. This structure will decrease vulnerability from storm inundation and flooding.
The Battery Park City Ballfields are located at a geographical low point making them susceptible to flooding, as experienced during Sandy . To avoid future damage and ensure that both the ballfield and community center remain fully operational all year round, flood protection systems will be implemented constructed. The anticipated completion of this project is late 2020.
