Welcome to TriBeCa
A trendy and hip community known for its creativity and abundant art galleries
Located along the Hudson River, the private and artsy neighborhood of Tribeca (“Triangle Below Canal Street”) is home to upscale shopping, mouthwatering fine dining, and an abundance of luxurious, exclusive loft apartments and townhouses. This historic community provides residents with scenic, waterfront views of the river and quiet, tree-lined streets running throughout the neighborhood.
By the early 21st century, Tribeca became the place to be for artists and creatives, launching the Tribeca Film Festival and developing the art scene. Tribeca offers unique experiences along its historic city corridors and is one of the most pleasant “walkable” communities in Manhattan. Its hip and trendy atmosphere fits nicely with its eclectic culinary scene, trendy art galleries, and welcoming neighbors.
What to Love
- The historic architecture and unique walk-ups
- Incredible culinary opportunities to curb all cravings
- Laid-back, slower-paced atmosphere unique to Manhattan
Tribeca is home to varied, historical architecture. Some buildings date back to the 1600s and feature classic, gothic, and modern designs. Restored warehouses have become loft apartments and luxury condominiums nestled in the heart of the neighborhood along gorgeous tree-lined streets while high-rise apartment complexes line the outskirts. For a peaceful break from the noise of the city, living in Tribeca affords a slower-paced lifestyle with a more “suburban” feel than the densely populated districts of Manhattan. The ideal neighborhood to foster creative minds and expression, Tribeca is a beautiful place to call home.
Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
The Odeon in Tribeca has been a neighborhood favorite for 40 years. An “attitude-free” and hip atmosphere, the Odeon offers fresh, organic French-American cuisine in beautiful indoor/outdoor dining spaces. Make a reservation for brunch, lunch, or dinner and peruse the menu — the Odeon Burger and lobster rolls are some of their most popular creations as well as a grilled trout Amandine and aged prime New York strip steak.
A neighborhood favorite for 30 years, Bubby’s is a restaurant and pie shop that celebrates classic, made-from-scratch American cooking. Dedicated to fresh comfort foods and an “off the commercial food path” philosophy, the folks at Bubby’s strive to bring diverse culinary experiences to the table. With purveyors from all over New York State and the country, you will experience nothing but the best ingredients in your grass-fed burgers and breakfast plates.
Visit Locanda Verde on the corner of Greenwich Street for a satisfying, authentic Italian meal. Chef and restaurateur Andrew Carmellini creates rustic and refined meals with passion — dishes include pan-roasted sea scallops, potato gnocchi with pesto, and a rich blueberry mascarpone gelato with lemon and pizzelles.
Things to Do
Since its inception in 2002, the Tribeca Film Festival has become a world-renowned legendary event. With over 2.3 million people in attendance over the years at in-person screenings, workshops, actor interviews, and panel discussions, the festival has also incorporated a virtual option since 2010, expanding its audience to guests around the world. For those interested in film, the festival is a can’t miss Tribeca tradition.
Famous for its art scene, Tribeca is known for its eccentric art galleries, installations, and exhibits scattered around the neighborhood. The New York Art Center hosts monthly art walks through the streets of Tribeca to catch a glimpse of these works and features in-house exhibits and shows for hundreds of up-and-coming artists each year. If art is your passion, you won’t be disappointed in the number of opportunities Tribeca offers!
A “tiny but mighty” neighborhood treasure, Duane Park is a beautifully maintained public space in the heart of Tribeca. Offering an idyllic spot to relax and enjoy nature within the towering skyscrapers of Manhattan, Duane Park hosts outreach events, education programming, and activities for all ages that focus on sustainable practices and environmental awareness.
Pier 25, part of Hudson River Park, is Tribeca’s playground. There are three custom-designed play spaces, including a water playground during the warmer months. Loaded with activities for children, Pier 25 is the perfect place for the whole family to explore, play, and learn in one central location. Play a round of mini-golf, run around on the turf fields, and explore a historic vessel at Pier 25. (Don’t forget to grab an ice cream cone at one of two fantastic ice cream stands!)
