"Battery Park boring."

I think this part of Pearl as outlined on the map is, technically, Battery Park City, but they sort of blend into each other anyway. This used to be big time farmland when New York was New Amsterdam, and Pearl, in general, is a very heavy governmental street and always has been. The first produce market was on Pearl in the 1650's and I can't imagine any kind of community gathering like that in this area anymore. I think I would pass out from shock.
The corner of Broad and Pearl houses a really cool apartment building and a not cool office building that used to be the New York State Capital Building. The building that was there has long since been torn down which is sad because what a cool monument that could have been. The rest of the buildings on Pearl as it runs through this neighborhood are all apartment buildings which are crazy expensive because of the park view. It's a good mix of old and new buildings but there's not a lot happening around here, energy or nightlife wise. It's really chaotic during the day and absolutely dead at night. And, there's just no neighborhood feel.

"Great Location, good food."

Pearl Street has a cool, busy vibe to it. Because it is located close to the Brooklyn Bridge there is a lot of foot traffic and a ton of great quick food options. The Pearl Street Diner offers homey food and great burgers. Ketch offers more upscale dining. It's a nice area and great to walk around. Transportation is great and it's Financial District proximity makes it a good choice for those in the business.

"Pearls of Wisdom"

I didn't like this street. It was unattractive, the people were rude, and it was very smelly. I wasn't impressed and don't think you'll see this street on any tours of New York City anytime soon. It's fairly
convenient though and it is close to the metro! You'll find more in terms of conveniences, but nothing too interesting.
