What Manhattan neighborhood boasts cobblestoned streets, factory lofts-gone-residential, an international film festival and the firehouse from Ghostbusters? Why TriBeCa, of course!
A Recent History
In the 1970s, TriBeCa, short for the Triangle Below Canal St., became one of Lower Manhattan’s first manufacturing neighborhoods to be renamed and rezoned for residential use. The decades before had seen an exodus of industrial and commercial tenants and the area, then known as Washington Market, or simply the Lower West Side, had fallen into disuse.
With the 80s arrived artists and families, spurring urban renewal which has since characterized Manhattan’s west side.
Today, in classic New York form, TriBeCa’s gritty exterior conceals some of the most expensive apartments. In fact, TriBeCa is second only to SoHo in terms of real estate value in the city, ranking as the country’s 7th most expensive zip code, according to Forbes Magazine.
A walk through Tribeca reveals a unique mix of historic and modern, grungy and chic. New development, such as the Washington Market Park, the TriBeCa Grand Hotel, and countless Zagat-rated restaurants only add to the neighborhood’s appeal.
