Neighborhood Image Tribeca


The neighborhood known as the “triangle below Canal (Street)” is one of America’s wealthiest zip codes and home to celebrities, titans of industry, and old school creatives.

Tribeca is home to many of Manhattan's most famous landmarks and highly-publicized events. The world-famous Tribeca Film Festival, the Tribeca Film Center, Washington Market Park and the Clocktower Gallery are found here, as are Staple Street, Duane Park, Hudson River Park, and Pier 25. It is also home to some of the finest education, art galleries, boutiques and fine restaurants in the nation.

There are fewer trees here than in some other areas of the city, but the neighborhood is filled with a character that is hard to match. In Tribeca you'll find street art, wooden water towers, cobblestone streets, loading docks and metal awnings that more than make up for the sparser vegetation lining the streets. Renters will find loft-style residences, with their open concept plans and high ceilings, as well as post-war gems that have the older architecture many associate with life in New York City. These lofts and post-war flats are interspersed amongst a few luxury high rises with modern facades and small balconies.

Transportation within the neighborhood is plentiful, with ten trains running through Tribeca's nine stations. It takes less than fifteen minutes by train to get to Columbus Circle, Union Square or 42nd Street. Residents also enjoy well-planned waterfront access.
