Living In: Tribeca

Share Info About Tribeca
Tribeca apartments are some of the most coveted in all of Manhattan - in fact, for many years this area's zip code, 10013, was the wealthiest in the entire country. That's pretty remarkable for an area that didn't really exist as a residential neighborhood until as late as 1980. Today, as you step from your apartment, do not be surprised to see any number of famous artists, musicians and actors, many of whom now call this area home. In fact, Tribeca's most famous resident/booster Robert DeNiro loves his neighborhood so much he owns three of its most popular restaurants. DeNiro also started the Tribeca Film Festival in 2002 to bring positive energy and an infusion of spending to the area after the attacks of 9/11. TriBeCa - an acronym for its geographic position as the Triangle Below Canal [Street] - sits on the west side of downtown Manhattan, north of the Financial District, south of SoHo, and has as much charm and old-world ambiance as it does star power. An area once occupied by warehouses has now become a bastion of loft-living, and luxury NYC apartments. Many of the original warehouses with cast-iron facades have been converted into beautiful residential buildings. A two-block stretch on Staple Street has long been a favorite of filmmakers with its connecting overhead walkway and proximity to the Federal row houses on Harrison Street. Washington Market Park was once the site of a great food market; now it is a landscaped recreation space with a gazebo and playground. And Tribeca boasts one of the City's great outdoor spaces, perfect for relaxation, family fun, and fitness-- the beautiful Hudson River Park. You need not go far for excellent food in Tribeca, for this area is home to several of Manhattan's finest restaurants. Bouley and Bouley Bakery offer, respectively, spectacular high-end French fare and some of the tastiest sweet treats in town. For Tribeca residents, Nobu, one of Robert Deniro's places, serves outstanding food, both traditional sushi and Japanese "country" dish, including its renowned, much-imitated Black Cod in Miso. The Tribeca Grill, also part-owned by the actor, is fashionable, but presents a hearty menu daily; and Deniro's newest venture, Locanda Verde, has been cooking moderately-priced Italian to some of the best reviews of the year. Other signature Tribeca hot spots include Odeon, the still-trendy bistro signaled by a red deco neon sign; the vast sushi palace Megu; and the relentlessly hip Smith and Mills. Tribeca Living is popular because of the prime quality of neighborhood and the unmatched atmosphere. Between the star-power of the area and cultural attractions like restaurants and outdoor spaces, it's no wonder Tribeca apartments are so sought after.
