BPC is a relatively new neighborhood constructed in the last 30 years. Approximately one third of its land mass is soil from the original WTC’s foundation. BPC was planned as a residential community for WTC and Wall Street workers and for this reason most apartments are one and two bedrooms.
BPC has its own suburban energy and likeness. The tree lined streets are quiet but the park is alive with joggers, bicyclists, skaters and people just having fun along the esplanade right along the Hudson River. Families and professionals alike choose BPC for the convenience to the financial district. BPC boasts a marina, free outdoor concerts at the South Street Seaport and Winter Garden, an 11 movie theatre, restaurants, shopping an outdoor plaza.
The September 11th tragedy, hit BPC hard when most of its residential buildings were evacuated. Since then, the neighborhood has fought back to a sense of normalcy.
