The “Triangle Below Canal Street”, bounded by Canal Street, West Street, Cortlandt Alley, Broadway and Chambers Street is the very embodiment of the kind of industrial chic first expressed by artists to her neighbor to the North, SoHo. One of the most popular areas for filmmakers to shoot on location, it is also home to the internationally renowned Tribeca Film Festival.
Once an area of fruit and vegetable warehouses and machine shops, the abundant square footage of what would soon become loft spaces attracted artists to the area in the 1970’s. Today the area is one of lower Manhattan’s most desirable, with access to numerous subway lines, proximity to the Hudson River (and the Holland Tunnel), ample square footage in most properties, and exclusive loft developments attracting a well-heeled collection of young professionals and families; many of whom are leading names in finance, entertainment and the arts.
TriBeCa aligns with the Hudson River Park, which boasts beautiful landscaping, playgrounds, relaxation areas, bike and run paths which stretch all the way up the West Side.
