Living in Tribeca

Tribeca, an acronym for "Triangle Below Canal," is home to a host of celebrities and one of the country's leading film festivals. A stunning mix of old world cobblestones, ultra-modern apartment blocks, and world-famous restaurants, in recent years Tribeca has become one of the New York's most upscale addresses.

This formerly industrial area could not be further from its roots. The warehouses and factories have now been transformed into a wealth of Tribeca apartments, converted lofts, and luxury condos.

Outside of this, there is an abundance of living options. Historic walk-ups with community gardens mix with state of the art penthouses featuring stunning views of the Hudson River. In fact, whether you want a Tribeca luxury apartment to buy or rent, there is something to meet your needs.

Tribeca history


Some SEO content” style=

It's hard to imagine now but at the beginning of the 18th century, Tribeca was originally a farming community of Dutch settlers. By the mid-nineteenth century, it had become one of the first residential neighborhoods in New York.

With the increase of shipping via the Hudson, various industries sprung up but as freight shipping transferred to trucks and railroads and the Holland Tunnel was built, the area became congested.

The building of the Miller Highway, more commonly known today as the West Side Highway, relieved this. But by the 1960's the factories and warehouses had begun to transfer to the Bronx leaving a significant amount of empty commercial space to rent that was soon taken by artists looking for large cheap studios.

By the early 21st century, the neighborhood had transformed once more becoming one of the most fashionable zip codes in the city.

The Tribeca Film Festival launched in 2002 attracting celebrities from the world of art, film and music and has grown to draw nearly 3 million people to the city for the annual event.

Those looking for somewhere to stay as they search the area have several options. The Roxy Hotel offers modern luxury with a wink to the past, while the Frederick Hotel mixes vintage styles with a contemporary touch.

Tribeca has also retained its artistic side with small independent galleries like Postmasters and Alexander and Benin showing exhibitions of contemporary art.

The Poster Museum is a fascinating collection of vintage posters and prints from around the world some dating back to 1870.

The artistic theme continues at Poets House, a national poetry library and literary center that holds readings, lectures and workshops for those who want to improve their literary skills.

Tribeca shopping


You'll find the antidote to mass-produced fashion at Annelore. It features timeless designs, all handmade in New York with never more than thirty pieces created for any season.

Patron of the New describes itself as 'an elegant lifestyle boutique' and offers men's and women's designer clothing along with housewares.

European elegance is on display at Christina Lehr who offers high-quality female fashion. Previously available at chic boutiques like Calypso and Steven Alan, this is her first stand-alone store.

Mystery, crime and espionage are not normally part of a shopping spree but if you're in Tribeca, we recommend a trip to the Mysterious Bookstore, a long established favorite filled with page-turners.

While Takahachi Bakery offers baked goods with a distinctly Japanese twist, selling items like miso almond cookies, black sesame macaroons and matcha crepes.

Long famed for restaurants like the ultra-hip Japanese Nobu, Tribeca has grown to have a delicious array of eateries.

For starters, there is Locanda Verde, one of the best Italian restaurants in the city and a great place to enjoy excellent cuisine in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

Tamarind Tribeca is the second of two restaurants that take Indian cuisine to new heights combining traditional flavors with a modern sensibility. Its Flatiron location received a Michelin Star.

China Blue, by contrast, offers a tasty twist on Shanghainese cuisine with contemporary styling that makes the old feel new again.

For meat lovers seeking the perfect American steakhouse, there is the refined American Cut, considered one of the best of its kind in the country.

The clubby Brandy Library raises the bar for spirits, one snifter at a time with an array of small plates to accompany your liquor.

Welcoming Ward III offers to cure what ails you with one of their crafted cocktails served in a mellow, relaxed environment.

The polished Weather Up continues the cocktail theme. It pairs its delicious creations with sophisticated small plates and oysters.

Last but by no means least, there's B-Flat a jazz lounge with an upscale menu and, you guessed it, cocktails. Started by two of the original bartenders from the legendary Angel Share in the East Village, just grab one of the wooden booths and settle yourself in for the evening.
