Battery Park City Authority

The Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority (BPCA) is a public benefit corporation created in 1968 by Governor Nelson Rockefeller and the New York State Legislature to develop a 92-acre landfill at the southwestern tip of Manhattan. At Battery Park City, parcels of land are leased to private developers who build in accordance with BPCA guidelines. A fine arts program brings significant works of art to public spaces throughout Battery Park City. Currently Battery Park City is home to 13 works of public art by renowned artists such as Tom Otterness, Louise Bourgeois, Martin Puryear and many others. Battery Park City has 35 acres of public parks and gardens and cultural amenities such as The Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust and the NYC Police Memorial. It is the future home of the Skyscraper Museum, the Museum of Women - The Leadership Center, and the Irish Hunger Memorial. More than 40,000 people work in the World Financial Center, which was built on land leased from Battery Park City. When development is completed, about 10,000 people are expected to live in Battery Park City. The BPCA's public art program contributes to making Battery Park City one of the most successful and exciting examples of planned urban development in the world.
