What to Know Before Moving to Civic Center

Along with being the epicenter of the NYC government, Civic Center offers a multitude of amenities for a less congested (and relatively more affordable) lifestyle.

Community History

It’s important to acknowledge, along with its history and importance in governance, Civic Center is home to what is considered one of the earliest grave sites of people of African descent (with the majority having been slaves). In 1991, during the construction of a local building, excavators came across thousands of graves. Some estimate there are 15,000 to 20,000 Black people buried here. In honor of their memory, the African Burial Ground National Monument was constructed and unveiled in 2007.

Neighborhood Attractions

If the government is your thing, this is the place to be. From City Hall to various service buildings, this is the heartbeat of the city’s inner runnings. It’s also home to various monuments and architectural wonders. These include (as previously mentioned) the African Burial Ground National Monument, The Oculus, and the Woolworth Building. It might not be the most thrilling or dynamic neighborhood in Manhattan, but for those looking for more peace, quiet, and reflection, Civic Center certainly provides that and more. Of course, the neighborhood is surrounded by some of the finest cuisine, shopping, attractions, and nightlife in the world. From Tribeca to Chinatown, fun is a stroll, subway ride, or peddle away.

Types Of Buildings

As the heart of the city government, Civic Center is home to many administration buildings, courthouses, and service centers. But it’s not all about government structures here. 8 Spruce Street, for example, is one of the tallest residential skyscrapers on the globe, towering at 76 stories. Along with the awe-inspiring skyscraper, you’ll find a plethora of industrial, entertainment, and warehousing structures. As for more residential buildings, there has been an influx of development in recent years. Now, the market includes everything from cozy studios to modernized co-ops to chic downtown apartments. One thing to keep in mind is inventory tends to be pretty limited, so it pays to keep an eye out for new listings.

Walkscore Info

When it comes to walkability, rideability, and public transit, Civic Center knocks it out of the park on all three counts. Manhattan is known for phenomenally walkable neighborhoods, but this particular community ranks among the best in the city. Needless to say, you can perform a host of errands without a vehicle. As for public transportation, we’re talking world-class. Offering numerous bus lines and subway lines, as well as car sharing (from companies like Zipcar, Hertz On Demand, and Enterprise CarShare), the neighborhood makes it a breeze to get from point A to B. As for bikeability, though not as highly rated as the aforementioned, it stills shines. Whether you bring your own or go with bike-sharing via Citi Bike, you’ll be able to peddle to your heart’s content in this highly accessible enclave.
