TriBeCa Apartments

Tribeca, short for Triangle Below Canal (“TriBeCa”), is a ritzy neighborhood on the southern part of Manhattan in NYC.

Tribeca rentals fall broadly into two categories: loft apartments in once-abandoned factories and newly-constructed luxury buildings with a wide array of amenities (doorman, gym, elevator, common roof deck, and so on). Many of the historic loft spaces are located in cast-iron buildings on cobblestone streets, and, out of these, many are characterized by sheet metal overhangs, under which meat and produce were once loaded and unloaded onto trucks. Because Tribeca is a historic district, few skyscrapers block the views to the river. As a result, many apartments have views of the Hudson—a rarity in NYC.

Tribeca is a fashionable neighborhood known for its celebrity residents, scenic locales, and former industrial buildings (now converted into residential buildings and lofts). The population is approximately 14,700. Residents primarily consist of affluent families and high-earning professionals. Some noteworthy landmarks include the Holland Tunnel, Hudson River Park, and Hook & Ladder Company No. 8—the still-functioning firehouse where the Ghostbusters movies were filmed. Tribeca has gained celebrity over the past decade with the advent of the Tribeca Film Festival in 2002. The festival was co-founded by two Tribeca residents, Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal, in response to the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center. Another one of Tribeca’s celebrity residents, Jay-Z, references the neighborhood in his hit song, “Empire State of Mind.” Tribeca is home to some world-famous restaurants including The Tribeca Grill, Nobu, and Dylan Prime. The bar scene ranges from upscale to laidback with bars like Church Lounge at the Tribeca Grill, Grace, and Antarctica.

More about Tribeca

With the Hudson River forming its western border, Tribeca is located south of SoHo, west of Chinatown, and north of the Financial District. Tribeca’s residential development began in the late eighteenth century. By the mid-nineteenth century, Tribeca had become a commercial center. By 1960, it had nearly lost its industrial base, and many artists had migrated to the area by the 1970s. Finally, in the 1980s, Tribeca underwent a large-scale conversion, and it has been an upscale residential area ever since.

Transportation to Tribeca includes the 1 to Canal, Franklin, or Chambers Street, the 2/3 to Chambers Street, the A/C/E to Canal near West Broadway, or the 6 to Canal and Broadway. Bus options include the M20 bus up Hudson Street, the M6 up Sixth Avenue, the M20 down Seventh Avenue/Varick Street or the M1 down Broadway. The M-22 goes Crosstown at Chambers Street.
