Tribeca is situated on the Lower West Side, as signified by its name, short for Triangle Below Canal. As time has passed, the boundaries have expanded slightly northward to almost Houston Street. This are, though formerly classed as SoHo west, can more properly be defined as Tribeca, as it retains the flavor and character of the rest of the triangular neighborhood.
Tribeca’s history is full of factory life and today, of book publishing. Publishers line the streets down here, from West Broadway to the river. This was and is the publishing district of New York—major publishing houses and the little guys alike do their business in the ancient loft spaces lining West Broadway, White, and Leonard Streets.
In the last 15 years it has become one of the most desirable places in New York to live. High-end lofts are the primary draw for the affluent as well as many luxury buildings surrounded by art galleries, fashion boutiques, nightclubs and top-shelf restaurants.
Many industrial buildings along the Hudson waterfront have slowly been converted to large retail spaces and residences but its intrinsic charm and 19th century elegance remains. It also offers residents a waterfront park and piers that house many waterfront events.
Exclusivity, charm and convenience tend to make this a highly desirable place to live.
