New York Harbor - Views from Battery Park City

New York Harbor is the bodies of water, rivers, bays, ports and islands around New York City at the mouth of the Hudson river. The first recorded European in the harbor was Henry Hudson in 1609. He was greeted by the native Lenepe Algonquins when his ship entered the harbor. He discovered Manhattan island and sailed up the river named after him.

Battery Park City is a 92 acre planned comunity at the southwestern tip of lower Manhattan. The land it is located on was created from the Hudson river using dirt and rocks excavated during construction of the World Trade Center.  All buildings in BPC constructed since the year 2000 have been designed using green (LEED) certified sustainable technology. Many of the apartments in BPC have Statue of Liberty, New York Harbor and Hudson river views.

Last night David Letterman said on his show that yesterday was the 400th anniversary of the Dutch arriving in New York harbor. (1609-2009)

Mayor Bloomberg and Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen, announced a year of special events, exhibits, outdoor activities and performances to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Henry Hudson aboard the Dutch vessel 'Halve Maen' to New York City.

NYC officials also announced that the celebration of the City's Dutch roots and its waterfront will culminate with a special Harbor Day on September 13.

I've always thought Battery Park City one of the nicest residential section of NY. I especially like the meandering walk along the shore.
