BPC South Neighborhood Walking Tour 1

Thu, Jun 9, 2022

Tour 1 on June 9 at 4pm—repeated on June 24—explored 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 visited historic Pier A, Wagner Park, 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, and learned about the developing Resilience Action Plan of the BPC Authority.

This program was supported by a Community Partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.
