About Tribeca

One of Manhattan's most unique and exclusive neighborhoods, Tribeca borders the Financial District and Soho. It encompasses the area from Canal Street south to Vesey Street and westward from Broadway to the Hudson River. About 17,000 residents live here, mostly in multimillion-dollar lofts that were once historic warehouse buildings. The historic loft apartments, cobblestone streets, and world-class restaurants make quite a charming and desirable neighborhood.

Tribeca has a history as unique as the neighborhood is today. Once farmland, the area was commercialized in the 1850s. Factories and warehouses built in industrial, cast-iron buildings sprang up quickly. City planners adopted the name "TriBeCa" in the 1960s to stand for Triangle Below Canal Street. By the 1970s, the neighborhood was a haven for New York City's artistic community. Painters, sculptors, and photographers eagerly turned abandoned lofts into studios and galleries. Today, most leftover warehouse buildings are sturdy, well-built luxury condos and rentals that draw the Hollywood set since it's a popular filming location for movies and TV shows. The neighborhood is known worldwide for the Tribeca Film Festival, co-founded by Robert De Niro in 2002.

Residents can enjoy celebrity sightings along with Mediterranean-style cuisine at Tribeca Grill and signature dishes at Nobu's prepared by celebrity chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, one of the restaurant's owners. Roxy Hotel's Django jazz club and Paul's Cocktail Lounge are some popular spots for nightlife. Families with children like to gather in Washington Market Park for picnics and to play basketball and tennis. Nearby Hudson River Park and River Promenade with its amazing view of the NYC skyline has plenty of green space and features bike paths and family-friendly activities like miniature golf. Plenty of good schools and daycare options give this popular New York neighborhood a suburban feel while at the same time being attractive to young, single professionals.
