"Battery Park City and the Authority are not just about the buildings – it’s about the character of the community that has developed over time. Public space has had a new renaissance in New York City, but here in Battery Park City is where it started."

Debbie Addison, Battery Park City Authority’s Director of Project Management and Planning, has undertaken a wide array of planning and development projects since graduating from Columbia University with a degree in architecture in 2003.
