About Tribeca: The Tribeca name came to be applied to the area south of Canal Street, between Broadway and West Street, extending south to Chambers Street, hence “The Triangle below Canal”. In recent years the neighborhood has expanded a few blocks south to include, Warren and Murray Streets.
In the early 19th and 20th centuries Tribeca had a strong tie to the textile and cotton trades with many manufacturing and warehouse buildings being constructed throughout the neighborhood. In the mid 1970’s many artists began occupying empty warehouse spaces and created live / work environments. In the 1980’s, luxury loft conversions similar to that of SoHo began in the neighborhood, creating a more residential environment and began to put Tribeca on the residential map.
Today, Tribeca, also known as “TriBurbia” because of its small town feel, filled with young families, beautiful parks and some of the public schools in NYC, including Washington Market and PS 234. The low key neighborhood feel of Tribeca, as well as its selection of boutique residential buildings is also popular amongst Hollywood and hedge fund types a like. Since many of the residential buildings in Tribeca were previously commercial warehouse buildings, you tend to find “Grand scale lofts” in boutique sized buildings, catering to larger families, as well as those seeking privacy
