The unassuming abbreviation for ‘Triangle Below Canal Street’ belies the beauty and prestige of TriBeCa.
In the 1970’s, artists flocked to the then-stark neighborhood and made much live-work use of its sprawling loft spaces – but, just as with SoHo, the current lifestyle here is anything but bohemian. TriBeCa is one of lower Manhattan’s most desirable residential areas; locals love its proximity to the Financial District for work, plethora of exquisite restaurants for recreation, and sprawling blocks and homes that provide an elegant contrast to the oft cramped spaces and streets of the rest of downtown.
Stunning architecture, a variety of green spaces, galleries galore, and plenty of celebrity neighbors are just a handful of the reasons TriBeCa is considered one of the most fashionable, elegant areas of the city.
Elevating classic American comfort food to a level of finesse that suits the neighborhood perfectly, Bubby’s - which also has a location in Brooklyn’s DUMBO area - specializes in brunch and its legendary pies. Moreover, it stays open for 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays, making it a perfect last stop of the evening after a few drinks in TriBeCa’s posh bars.Bubby's Tribeca
Robert DeNiro started the TriBeCa Film Festival after the events of 9/11 in order to revitalize the neighborhood, whose businesses were greatly affected by their proximity to the tragedy. Held every spring, it is now one of the most seminal events in the film industry; the rest of the year, the Film Center holds screenings, provides office and gathering space for industry professionals, and is a center of NYC’s film community.TriBeCa Film Center
