Tribeca is a portmanteau of 'Triangle Beneath Canal Street' owing to its location and alleged shape on a map. It's actually more of a trapezoid shape so we're not sure who's coming up with place names, but we'll let it slide since this a cool lower Manhattan neighborhood. And by 'cool' we mean the actor Robert de Niro made it cool. ...Yeah, that's pretty cool.

Originally an industrial area, Tribeca morphed into an upscale residential neighborhood in the 1980s and 1990s. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11 drastically reduced business around this part of the city, de Niro (and others) started the now famous Tribeca Film Festival to bring investment and acclaim to this neighborhood.

It worked: today Tribeca is a vibrant, safe place to live…and one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the city. Living in one of the beautiful renovated builds or the new luxury condos will set you back quite a bit: the median home price here is $4.4 million. However, residents and visitors alike rave about the community vibe and friendly, laid back people. It's also got one of the best public schools in the city. And nearly 1 in 5 residents here are expats.

You won't find the dense shopping that some of the adjacent neighborhoods have, but Tribeca does have a mix of unique stores and covers your basic needs, like a grocery store. There are plenty of dining options ranging from comfort food to high-end restaurants.

Tribeca is bordered on the north by SoHo, on the east by Chinatown and the Civic Center, on the south by the Financial District, and on the west by the Hudson River.
