Battery Park City, a planned community built on landfill in the 1970s and 80s. It is bounded on the east by West Street, which separates the area from the Financial District of downtown Manhattan. To the west, north and south, the area is surrounded by the tidal estuary of the Hudson River. The North Residential Neighborhood has a large hotel, Stuyvesant High School, a movie theater complex and a modern branch of the New York Public Library. Immediately to the south lies the World Financial Center. Its tenants include American Express, Dow Jones & Company, Merrill Lynch, and Deloitte & Touche. The ground floor and portions of the second floor are occupied by a mall; its center point is a steel-and-glass atrium known as the Winter Garden. Outside of the Winter Garden lies the North Cove, a sizeable yacht harbor on the Hudson.

South of the World Financial Center lies the majority of Battery Park City's residential areas, in three sections: "Gateway Plaza", a high-rise building complex; the "Rector Place Residential Neighborhood" and the "Battery Place Residential Neighborhood". These neighborhoods contain most of the area's residential buildings, along with park space and various types of supporting businesses
