TriBeCa

Tucked to the west, south of Canal Street, residential TriBeCa (the triangle below Canal Street) has a quieter vibe than most other Manhattan neighborhoods. Walk the photogenic streets here, especially the stretch of Federal row houses on Harrison Street, and you'll understand why so many celebrities own apartments here. The two-block-long Staple Street, with its connecting overhead walkway, is a favorite of urban cinematographers. And although TriBeCa's money is hidden away behind grand industrial facades, you can get a taste of it at one of the posh neighborhood restaurants or when the stars turn out for the annual TriBeCa Film Festival in spring.
