"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."

Rector Park

Rector Park was designed by the Authority and Innocenti-Webel and Vollmer Associates. Its twin gardens are quiet and protected. They offer a pleasant place to rest or read, have a quiet lunch, or watch your baby nap; no active recreation please.
