Tucked on the west side south of Canal Street, residential TriBeCa (the Triangle Below Canal Street) has a quieter vibe than most other Manhattan neighborhoods. Walk the photogenic streets, especially the stretch of Federal row houses on Harrison Street, and you’ll understand why celebrities and other moneyed New Yorkers own apartments here. The two-block-long Staple Street, with its connecting overhead walkway, is a favorite of urban cinematographers. Although TriBeCa residents' wealth is often hidden behind grand cast-iron facades, you can get a taste of it at posh neighborhood restaurants, cocktail bars, and boutiques, or at the star-studded Tribeca Film Festival every spring.
