Tribeca, Manhattan: Trendy Downtown Neighborhood with Historic Homes and Waterfront Parks
The Tribeca neighborhood, whose name is short for Triangle Below Canal, encompasses about 40 blocks in Lower Manhattan. Its cobblestone streets are lined with huge cast-iron buildings that served as cotton factories and textile mills in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In recent years, the neighborhood has emerged as one of the most fashionable places to live in the city, and these former industrial spaces have been converted into lavish residences for tenants such as Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Meryl Streep, and Gwyneth Paltrow. This transformation has given rise to a number of haute-cuisine restaurants and designer boutiques, but the neighborhood still maintains a quiet, residential vibe.
Tribeca is home to a thriving arts scene. You’ll find cutting-edge art galleries and performance venues along Franklin Street, and the Tribeca Film Festival—one of the most renowned independent-film events in the world—takes place here every spring. The neighborhood’s striking architecture includes at least one masterpiece: the neo-Gothic Woolworth Building on Broadway. The building’s gargoyles are caricatures of notable figures at the time of construction, including the building’s architect, Cass Gilbert.
There are also a number of outdoor attractions to explore. Hudson River Park, which spans nine blocks, features a 5-mile waterfront promenade. And be sure to check out the High Line, a scenic park and walkway built on a historic railroad suspended above the streets of Chelsea.
