Situated between Canal St to Park Place & City Hall, between the Hudson River and Lafayette St, TriBeCa (short for Triangle below Canal Street) has earned global notoriety as the home of the TriBeCa Film Festival, which was started by Robert De Niro in 2002.
Tribeca was historically a manufacturing and warehouse district, and the conversion of those buildings has produced some great condo and co-op lofts.
Behind the brick and cast-iron façades of Tribeca are apartments big enough to have a 100+ people party in, many with high ceilings, great light, and luxurious and open kitchens. Beautiful residential buildings include 200 Chambers, 101 Warren and Artisan Lofts.In the northern part of Tribeca, the 60 Beach conversion offers arched windows, Valcucine kitchens, and walnut floors, all accessible from private key-locked elevators — and there’s a doorman. For those who love glass, the new development at 56 Leonard is touted as “sculpture in the sky.”
Shopping is plentiful as well, with small shops run by local and international designers. Neighborhood favorites include Locanda Verde, Nobu, Dylan Prime and Macao (signature cocktails!).
