Tribeca Neighborhood Guide – Everything You Need To Know
Tribeca’s Location, Origin, and Vibe
What we know as Tribeca today was originally farmland, like most of Manhattan. Its name actually refers to the ‘Triangle Below Canal Street’, though it’s actually more of a trapezoid. Most of its buildings date from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of the structures used to be textile factories and warehouses, but the neighborhood has changed dramatically over the years.
Now, you are more likely to see world-class cuisine and celebrities than factories and warehouses. The cobblestone streets, old buildings, and general quiet charm make it a favorite of many, including celebrities.
