Battery Park City

It blows my mind that Battery Park City exists and that it is in Manhattan. Each neighborhood gives off a different vibe, but they are all warm, culturally rich, and unique. Battery Park City sits there at the tip of the island, cold and soul-less. It is full of new buildings, state-of-the-art technology, and modern art, but there is no Manhattan culture or home feeling. My professor last semester always talked about this international professional creative/business class and how they stay in a city for a few years then fly off to the next one. They didn’t have permanent homes. And that’s exactly what Battery Park City is. Professionals come and go. They aren’t tied down to the culture or the city. Battery Park City is simply yet another temporary home. It is the stop before Shanghai and Hong Kong. And that’s not okay with me.

Just look at the stupid monkey: Is that the New York you know? Sure isn’t the one I know.
