What to Do in TribecaFebruary 13, 2014 - by City Guide
Named for the TRIangle BElow CAnal, Tribeca's (Canal Street south to Park Place, and from the Hudson River east to Broadway) landscape is dominated by cobblestone streets and former industrial buildings that have been converted into large, luxurious lofts and apartments. Many contend that its biggest draw for out-of-towners is the food. There are a multitude of restaurants where you can get anything from a burrito to sushi to homemade desserts. It's also "the place" for furniture -- both vintage and new -- with a variety of stores.
The Tribeca Film Festival, chaired by actor and longtime Tribeca resident Robert De Niro, draws the leading lights of the film industry and highlights lower Manhattan's cultural vitality. The popular Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair takes place on the final day from Hubert to Chambers Street. For a complete festival schedule, visit www.tribecafilm.com.
