TriBeCa, an acronym for “Triangle Below Canal “ (Canal Street being the north side of the triangle, Broadway being the east side of the triangle, and the West Side Highway being the west side of the triangle), has become one of the most expensive zip codes for real estate in the country since its early days of being primarily a warehouse and factory area. It’s a very popular neighborhood for young families and professionals from Wall St. The real estate is diverse, with a great mix of renovated pre-war beautiful lofts, to low-rise cast iron buildings, to luxury high rise new construction. Minutes away from the Financial District, SoHo, West Village, Battery Park City and Chinatown, coupled with the excellent array of world-famous restaurants (including Nobu), shopping, and great public schools, make this one of the most popular and prime neighborhoods in Manhattan. Popular tourist attractions include Washington Market Park (one of the oldest parks in the city) and the Ghostbusters Firehouse.
