With its cobblestone streets, waterfront views, and charming feel of quiet sophistication, it’s easy to see why Tribeca has become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of Manhattan. This is an architectural paradise of converted industrial buildings, luxury high rises, trendy lofts, and beautiful cast-iron buildings. Full of galleries, wine bars, and eateries, Tribeca has all the big city amenities while still being a family-friendly neighborhood. Don’t be surprised if you see a famous film star walking down the street, as this is where many celebrities also call their home. Fun fact: Tribeca was originally written as TriBeCa—a 1960s designation for “Triangle Below Canal Street.” While you’re here, try the retro Weather Up for a cocktail, or sip on your favorite cognac at the well-stocked Brandy Library. One of our favorite places to visit is The Mysterious Bookshop—an amazing bookstore with floor-to-ceiling walls of crime and suspense novels.
