Though its name technically stands in for the mouthful of “Triangle Below Canal Street,” Tribeca has long since distinguished itself as a recognizable word in the NYC lexicon. (Plus, its boundaries these days are hardly triangular). Tribeca lofts are the standard-bearer for that style of home; sitting within their landmarked cast-iron building exteriors, they have become objects of adoration and aspiration. Following the Civil War, the city’s shipping industry shifted from East to West Side, due in no small part to the longer piers along the Hudson in present-day Tribeca. That body of water still looms large today, as views over it are another key draw for residents in the area. A chunk of Hudson River Park—which extends north over four miles—lies within Tribeca as well, granting a relaxing waterside public space and a simple route to travel as far north as 59th Street via the Hudson River Greenway.
