In many ways, Tribeca is a neighborhood for New Yorkers who’ve made it. Once a sparsely-populated industrial area filled with factories, its sweeping lofts are now inhabited by sophisticated families and celebrities enjoying the rarest of Manhattan luxuries: breathing room. Everything’s a little bit bigger here — the streets, the spaces, and, yes, the incomes.
While Tribeca invites an affluent, family-oriented crowd, it’s not at the expense of a sense of what’s cool. Every year, the Tribeca Film Festival brings in filmmakers and viewers from around the world. Some of Manhattan’s most acclaimed restaurants, including the legendary Odeon, are here. And Tribeca residents find more than work in the neighbouring Financial District and Battery Park — a batch of new developments offering everything from shopping and restaurants to cooking and sailing lessons have emerged with the rebuilt One World Trade Center.View all Tribeca spaces
When I'm in Downtown I visit Maxwell's bar and Search and Destroy vintage shop.

It's a diverse area, from the people to the food, to the mix of parks and architecture.
The streets here are like no other in the city. You almost feel like you're in the 1950's.
