Present day Tribeca still basks in the glow of its 19th Century Warehouse palaces, many designed by the leading architects of the day. In the last 30 years, butter and eggs have given way to one of the city’s most prestigious tight-knit communities blending a laid-back downtown vibe with upscale services and amenities.
Pioneered by artists, Tribeca is now home to people who flock to the wonderful open space of its trademark lofts and number of new luxury buildings - which have given Tribeca its first doormen and in-house gyms.
Today’s Tribeca is a residential gem. On Saturday mornings, parents shop at the Green Market beside Washington Market Park, while their kids play on the jungle gym. Whole Foods is a block away. Bouley offers up French pastry. World-class restaurants like Nobu rub elbows with brunch favorite Bubby’s. Hudson River Park anchors the Greenway, offering uninterrupted bike rides to the GW Bridge and Wall Street. Tribeca is home to unmatched public schools like PS 234 and Stuyvesant High, a downtown branch of the 92 Street Y, and hosts the annual Tribeca Film Festival. All major subway lines run through this hip enclave.
For beauty, convenience, comfort and a neighborhood feel, it’s unequalled.
