Once home to industrial warehouses, TriBeCa is now the land of celebrity-owned lofts. It’s easy to see why. The neighborhood offers a spectacular view of the Hudson River on its western border and notable restaurants throughout, including the Odeon, made famous by the novel Bright Lights, Big City, along with a number of luxury hotels and other accommodations.

This downtown neighborhood is rightly renowned for its mix of high-end restaurants, stylish shops and cultural offerings.
