Maybe it’s artists, entrepreneurs and film and theatre professionals who live and work nearby or maybe just the high ceilings, but beyond the profusion of ethnic cuisine and fresh, local ingredients that typify contemporary Manhattan dining, a certain patina of worldly sophistication infuses even the most casual coffee spot with downtown dynamism and laid-back glamour.
In addition to edgy, one-of-a-kind home furnishings, insanely hip designer boutiques and one fabulous, narrow shop that specializes in Japanese chef knives — Tribeca offers a myriad of portable pleasures to be gleaned and shared with those at home.
Culture of Our Tribeca neighborhood A colonial outpost of residential living, sheltered from the city’s hubbub, a mercantile center for the food industry and ultimately, an important hub for the textile industry, Tribeca has always led a colorful existence. Today, it remains vital and colorful, but with more of an emphasis on lifestyle, creativity and culture.
