Made famous for its annual Tribeca Film Festival and being just off-center from NYC's City Hall and financial district.

Welcome to Tribeca

An wealth of creative accolades, with a peacefully private vibe

It's hard to believe such a private neighborhood could exist right next to the heart of NYC's central municipalities — until you behold Tribeca's easy-to-love magnificence for yourself. Made famous for its annual Tribeca Film Festival and being just off-center from NYC's City Hall and financial district, it's become heavily populated with political, Wall Street, and entertainment-industry magnates of all stripes.

The area's palpable sense of affluence and celebrity, however, is only just above the surface, as Tribeca also has a grounded sense of approachable urbane style. As if synthesizing the very best that all other NYC districts have to offer, Tribeca merges some of the finest artistic, restaurant, and luxury scenes and merged them into one highly enjoyable potpourri of metropolitan flair.

What to Love

  • Superb architecture, with unique combinations of classic wood-and-brick motifs alongside ultra-refined modern designs
  • Proximity to the longest strip of natural Hudson River recreation amenities for miles
  • Tribeca's high-end design and furniture galleries
  • A beautiful collection of private and public art galleries
  • Incredibly deluxe fine-dining experiences 

Local Lifestyle

There's little not to do in Tribeca, which, despite its peaceful atmosphere, has an array of highly engaging, non-stop cultural offerings. Not only does Tribeca have one of the entire city's most vibrant restaurant scenes, but it also features an enormous range of modern and fine art galleries that rival even Chelsea's artistic prowess. Locals also have immediate access to pier-side parks and greenways, Jersey access via Holland Tunnel, and the city and state's political and financial power centers — not a bad place to be, no matter what your Big Apple ambitions are.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Hudson and Greenwich Streets are the main pedestrian thoroughfares, lined with incredible restaurants, bars, cafés, and shops to choose from. Odeon features deliciously refined French-American fare in a bustling, high-end bistro setting. Enjoy decadent American comfort food and brunch staples at Bubby's, a cheerful and brightly lit brick-and-wood dining space that bolsters Tribeca's classic style. If you're craving Chinese, Mr Chow will hit the spot with their artful dishes served in their equally tasteful modern interior dining space.

For another impressive Asian dining experience, try Nobu Downtown. Centered around an extraordinarily posh bar flanked by colossal Greco-Roman pillars, Nobu serves some of the most authentic sushi and other Japanese mainstays this side of the ocean or perhaps even the continent in an ultra-artistic dining area.

Things to Do

Every year, the Tribeca Film Festival occurs in various local venues, including the Tribeca Film Center, which attracts major international film interests. Like something from a film set, the Walker Hotel has an incredibly swanky and lounge-like bar, making for the perfect place to get acquainted with Tribeca's ultra-luxe side.

SoHo also hosts a fabulous collection of parks, including the gorgeous Hudson River Park, and Washington Market Park is another much-beloved recreation area. The latter, in particular, shows the incredibly family-friendly side of Tribeca, and the park cleverly keeps pests under control without pesticides thanks to its fun and informative annual Ladybug Day event.


As you'd imagine, a neighborhood close to NYC's major power centers also has some of the most highly regarded school options.

  • PS 234, K–5, Student-teacher ratio of 11:1 and high standardized test scores for reading and math
  • Borough of Manhattan Community College, Associates Degrees, Ranked top three in over two dozen categories for associates degree programs
  • locally, regionally, and nationally
