This youngest and southernmost neighborhood of Manhattan, created a little over forty years ago. Until that time, the land on which Battery Park City is situated today didn’t even exist (or rather, the lower part of that land rested at the bottom of the Hudson river, while the top soil existed as the ground over the current World Trade Center area).
I don’t consider myself particularly old. I’m in my mid-forties, and after a couple of decades of a consistently strong career in the field of luxury real estate, I think I’ve reached the point where I’m in top shape professionally (and I’d argue maybe physically as well) and get some of my best work done every day.
I’m passionate about the entire island of Manhattan, and I love all its neighborhoods – each one has its unique beauty, and if I were to start to describing to you all those things that I admire in each one, this storytelling session may last a while.
