If yesterday's big news of the proposed renovation of the Battery Maritime Building into a food haven actually comes to fruition, it'll need some downtown residents to, you know, go there. With that thought in mind, let's check out what about $1 million buys in the Financial District and Battery Park City these days, shall we?
What/Where: 3BR apartment, 50 Pine Street (above)
The Skinny: So you're not quite willing to show up at 3am to check out Shvo's new 20 Pine Street. No problem. Down the block, there are apartments on the market at 50 Pine, a former Curbed Development Du Jour. Take this 3BR/3bath 1,717 square foot pad, with the odd asking price of $1.122 million. Might its location on a darker lower floor have driven the price below this smaller (yet quite sunny!) 2BR on the ninth floor?

What/Where: 2BR, 200 Rector Place, Battery Park City
The Skinny: The interior decor is on the prim side at this 2BR (originally 3BR) apartment, but don't let granny-style furniture deter you from investigating what looks to be an inviting pad. Let's go to the listing prose: "The B-line is one of the few lines, in which, you can see river and city views from the apartment. 180 degrees of postcard river and city views. Sunsets all year around. One of the 50th most luxurious condominiums in Manhattan." See, there you go.

What/Where: 1BR, Lower Broadway
The Skinny: If you haven't had a chance to play around with Corcoran's new website yet, check out this 1BR "located in the heart of the financial district." (The financial district has a heart? Who knew?) "Just right for you Wall Street workers." (Right—just steps from your desk to bed at 4am.) If you can sneak away from work on Thursday afternoon, there's an open house from 1-3pm.
