Tribeca is a neighborhood of cobblestone streets, world-famous restaurants, and historic warehouse buildings that have been converted to multimillion dollar lofts. Easily one of the city's most expensive zip codes, 10013 (aka Tribeca) is also one of Manhattan's most charming neighborhoods.

Tribeca Boundaries

Tribeca stretches from Canal Street (bordering SoHo) south to Vesey Street (bordering the Financial District) and from Broadway all the way west to the Hudson River.

Cross the West Side Highway at Chambers Street to enjoy the lovely Hudson River Park and River Promenade, which stretches all the way from Battery Park City to the Chelsea Piers and beyond.

Tribeca Transportation

  • Subway: The 1 stops at Canal, Franklin, or Chambers. The 2 and 3 express lines stop only at Chambers. A, C, and E trains stop at Canal near West Broadway.

Tribeca Apartments & Real Estate

Known for its lofts and celebrity residents, Tribeca is one of Manhattan's hottest and priciest neighborhoods. Developers have converted most of the old warehouse buildings into luxury condos and rentals.

Tribeca Parks & Recreation

Washington Market Park has a great playground for the kids and basketball and tennis nearby for the grown-ups.

The Trapeze School of New York, located on West Street in the Hudson River Park, teaches you to fly through the air with the greatest of ease.

You can also find miniature golf, bike paths, and plenty of green grass in the Hudson River Park.

Tribeca History

The name Tribeca was coined by city planners in the 1960s to designate the "Triangle Below Canal Street." Originally farmland, Tribeca was commercialized in the 1850s. Now lofts and restaurants have moved into the old warehouses and factories. But Tribeca retains its aura of a neighborhood with a past.
