The Triangle Below Canal Street (TriBeCa) began to gain its reputation as a residential neighborhood in the 1970s, when artists arrived in search of less expensive accommodations and studio space. The area's unique industrial-age architecture of lofts, warehouses and market spaces—and the lifestyle of its residents—was a major influence on the popularity of "loft living" in the 1980s.
TriBeCa has since then become a sought-after neighborhood for anyone seeking—and willing to pay for—spacious living quarters in an urban setting. Developers have converted many of the original warehouse buildings into luxury condos—including 101 Warren, 200 Chambers, Pearline Soap Lofts and 145 Hudson—and rentals.
The neighborhood's historic, loft-lined streets are relatively quiet after business hours save the buzz and glow of fine dining establishments, neighborhood bistros and cafes that keep residents' sophisticated palates happy. Thankfully missing are the frat bars and watering holes that are unavoidable in many of the City's residential areas. The TriBeCa Film Festival brings cinephiles and industry types from around the globe, and the addition of a 92nd Street Y outpost has given residents and their families a cultural hub. Shopping is plentiful as well, with small shops run by local and international designers and enough drug stores and delis to serve residents in standard Manhattan fashion.
