First used to refer to this area by the Landmarks Commission in the 1960's, Tribeca is actually an acronym for "Triangle Below Canal" - TriBeCa. Since the 1970s, Tribeca has been experiencing a renaissance, as artists, retailers and even families have made themselves at home in the neighborhood's large warehouse buildings and lofts. With cobblestone streets, interesting warehouse buildings, and many cafes the neighborhood is a great one for wandering.
After the events of 9/11, the Tribeca Film Festival was created by Robert Deniro and some collegues to revitalize the area.
