Just south of SoHo, the cultural mecca of TriBeCa (the Triangle Below Canal Street) spans Park Place to Canal Street between Broadway and the Hudson River.  From its beginnings as an industrial area with warehouses and factories, TriBeCa emerged as a residential neighborhood in the 1970s. Starving artists priced out of nearby SoHo and Greenwich Village set up shop in TriBeCa’s loft apartments know for their industrial age architecture, abundance of light and open work spaces. Today, TriBeCa is one of NYC’s most upscale addresses, home to the social elite, celebrities, financiers, and fashionistas, as well as one of the country’s leading film festivals. Boasting architecturally stunning residences with waterfront views from walk-up apartments to converted lofts and luxury penthouse condos, TriBeCa offers its residents a wide range of dining options, from neighborhood cafes to fine dining restaurants, small designer  boutiques, artists’ studios, galleries and live music venues.
