A quick rundown of NYC neighborhoods through my eyes
Neighborhood Boundaries: Canal Street to the north, Vesey Street to the south, Broadway to the east and West Street to the west
Subways: A, C, E, 1, 2, 3 and R
Architecture: Immense cast iron lofts, classic pre-war walk up buildings, and new construction buildings (particularly on the far west side)
What I Like Most About It: Few places in Manhattan feel like Tribeca. It’s dominated by expansive, pre-war lofts with a super cool industrial feel. Some neighborhoods are just made for meandering, and this is truly one of them. You can get yourself caught up in the hustle and bustle of streets like Church Street and West Broadway. But, if you’re looking for a bit more private exploration, side streets like Beach Street, Vestry Street and North Moore Street offer a much more low key experience. Even though the neighborhood has great proximity to other downtown neighborhoods (Soho, the West Village, Battery Park City and the Financial District), it still manages to feel very self contained. This is probably due in part to the high number of great restaurants, bars and shops. And with great neighborhood conveniences like Whole Foods and Bed, Bath and Beyond, it’s easy to see why so many want to call Tribeca home.
