Tribeca, the TRIangle BElow CAnal Street, lies on the lower East Side of Manhattan. Close to Soho, it is bordered by Broadway and West Street. Once the industrial heart of the City, Tribeca's factories and unique cast iron fronted warehouses have been converted to spacious lofts, apartments and condos. The neighborhood became a haven for artists who found the loft spaces in these old buildings perfectly suited for studios. Now the neighborhood boasts many famous residents such as Robert DeNiro as well as many upscale restaurants and art galleries. In addition to its culture and happening feel, Tribeca is conveniently located close to the financial district and many unique neighborhoods. With its trendy art scene, hot restaurants and boutiques, and some of the city's top real estate, Tribeca is a prime place to live.
