"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."

Battery Park City Wildlife Census

Battery Park City is home to a wide range of wildlife across its 36 acres of parks and public space, from native insects to more than 100 species of birds.

Now, you can help Battery Park City improve its natural habitat by participating in BPCA’s Wildlife Census. To do so, find a quiet spot in one of our parks — at least six feet away from others, of course! — to complete a brief wildlife observation.

Look forward to seeing you (at a safe distance) in our parks soon.
