BPC South Neighborhood Walking Tour 1

Thu, Jun 22, 2023

Tour 1 on Friday, June 16 at 4pm—repeated on June 23— will explore Battery Park City’s southern district, which is home to the Skyscraper Museum and includes some of BPC’s earliest landscapes and infrastructure, including the residential enclaves built in the 1990s that followed the 1979 Cooper Eckstut Master Plan. We will visit historic Pier A and South Cove, as well as the green spaces that connect to the Esplanade, the first waterfront park in New York since the Brooklyn Heights Esplanade in 1951. We will also learn about current progress underway in Wagner Park, as part of the developing Resilience Action Plan of the BPC Authority.

This tour will meet at The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Place. Members can register by emailing programs@skyscraper.org before the sign-up for Tour 1 opens to the general public on June 1st. Non-members can register on a space-available basis after June 1st.

Registration for each tour is limited to 25 people. Confirmation emails will be sent 2 days before the event and must be confirmed by 24 hours before the event, or the reservation will be cancelled. Any updates for bad-weather cancellations will be sent to your email address.
