Tribeca was originally a manufacturing and warehouse district, the conversion of which has produced some great condo and co-op lofts. Behind the brick and cast-iron façades of Tribeca are apartments large enough to roller-skate in, many with high ceilings, great light, and luxury kitchens. The name TriBeCa itself stands for the Triangle Below Canal, the area running West from Lafayette Street to the Hudson River, north of Battery Park City. An explosion of new condos to the south, some with units for rent, includes 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 — with the addition of a doorman.
Tribeca offers a plethora of entertainment and leisure options. On the arts front, the Tribeca Film Festival draws moviemakers and fans from around the world every spring. For dining, Tribeca offers world-class restaurants like Bouley, Megu, and Nobu. And for leisure, make your way to Washington Market Park, a 1.6 acre park with a gazebo and a children’s playground. In addition, the esplanade and Hudson River views of Battery Park City are just minutes from the Tribeca neighborhood.
