Welcome to Tribeca

A sophisticated village in Lower Manhattan
 
The private and artsy neighborhood of Tribeca, originally known as “Triangle Below Canal Street,” is home to luxurious apartments and townhouses, upscale shopping, and incredible fine dining opportunities. Tribeca sits along the Hudson River, providing residents with peaceful, waterfront views, scenic walks through the neighborhood, and quiet, tree-lined streets.
 
Farmed by the Dutch in the late 1600s, the Tribeca area was one of the first to be developed in New York City. It remained a residential district until 1840 when Tribeca became the “hub” of essential shipping via the Hudson River. Over the next few decades, the neighborhood began to grow as a commercial district as more storefronts and warehouses popped up along the water and eventually expanded throughout Manhattan. 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 incredibly unique experiences along its historic city corridors.

What to Love

  • Upscale, 5-star restaurants on every corner

Local Lifestyle

Residents of the Tribeca area enjoy a mellow atmosphere in a historic district. The architecture dates back to the 1600s and features intricate details across a variety of classic, gothic, and modern designs. The restored warehouses and businesses from the 1700s through the early 1900s make Tribeca’s quiet streets feel like you’re living on a movie set, and residents can choose between high-rise, luxury apartment buildings with waterfront views or pre-war walk-ups for a more inexpensive alternative. Tribeca is perfect for families, young professionals, and retirees who enjoy a life surrounded by art, culture, and 5-star restaurants. For a peaceful break from Midtown and the noise of the city, living in Tribeca is a fantastic option for a more “suburban” feel within the city limits. Here, residents truly have the best of both worlds.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

The lively atmosphere of The Odeon in Tribeca has been a neighborhood favorite for 40 years. They provide 14th Street with an “attitude-free” and “hip” atmosphere and pride themselves on their fresh and organic French-American cuisines. This bistro offers beautiful indoor and outdoor dining spaces and features menu items like hangar steak and fries, trout amandine, and a delicious chocolate pudding for dessert. 
 
The innovative and approachable Restaurant Marc Forgione features new American cuisine from Chef Marc Forgione. From an early age, Marc began a passionate and experimental journey with food and flavor, culminating in the opening of his Tribeca restaurant in 2008. The playful and bold flavors make up a creative and rotating menu featuring classic American dishes with a twist. Try their flatiron steak with heirloom tomatoes, Shabazi swordfish with sauerkraut and fava beans, or share a plate of their popular Tribeca hot wings. 
 
For a soul-satisfying Italian meal, visit Locanda Verde on the corner of Greenwich Street. Chef and restaurateur Andrew Carmellini creates heartfelt, rustic, and refined meals for his New York City residents, with dishes like pan-roasted sea scallops, potato gnocchi with pesto, and a rich blueberry mascarpone gelato with lemon and pizzelles.  

Frenchette brings authentic, French bistro fare to New York City. Their menu is decorated with decadent and sophisticated meals that rotate seasonally, like duck frites, a tender bavette au poivre, and an all-natural wine list.

Things to Do

The Tribeca Film Festival is a legendary New York experience. Founded just after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff decided to create a festival in order to bring a sense of community and peace back to the citizens of New York. Since its inception in 2002, the film festival has seen over 2.3 million people at workshops, film screenings, actor interviews, and panel discussions. The event has included a virtual option since 2010, expanding its reach to millions more people in the U.S. and beyond.
 
The Fraunces Tavern Museum could be considered one of the most important historic places in New York City. A community meeting place since the 1600s, the tavern has seen its fair share of private meetings, presidential farewells, and elite social group foundings. Today, the museum operates for tours, school group enrichment activities, and period reenactments. The mission of the Fraunces Tavern Museum is to “preserve and interpret the history of the American Revolutionary era through public education,” and they offer rotating exhibitions year-round. 
 
One of the most treasured spaces in the museum is The Long Room, which often held private meetings and parties for members of the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary War. In the years following, the tavern experienced many reimaginings and restorations, and it was featured in Kym Rice’s exhibition Taverns: For the Entertainment of Friends and Strangers and became the inspiration for the set design of the Tony Award-Winning Musical, Hamilton. The room is currently part of the Long Room Enhancement Project, working to fully restore the space and make it more accessible to the public. 

Don’t forget to visit one of many art galleries in Tribeca! Famous for its art scene, Tribeca is known for its off-beat and eclectic galleries and exhibits scattered throughout the neighborhood. The New York Art center holds a monthly art walk in Tribeca and features hundreds of up-and-coming and seasoned artists, and here, attendees are able to talk to the artists about their work! Walk through all three galleries, chat with the artists, and maybe take a new piece home with you.
