This geometrically shaped neighborhood is called TriBeCa for short. It stands for Triangle Beneath Canal Street. What was once an industrial part of the city, it’s now an upscale and desirable urban location in NYC. It’s also a relatively safer and quieter part of downtown Manhattan — full of luxury living spaces (that come at a cost), but not crowded sidewalks.

Our top Tribeca moving tips

Some people say it’s a triangle. Others say it’s more of a trapezoid shape. What’s also debated, but generally accepted, are the bounds of the neighborhood itself.

From East to West, it spans from the Hudson River to Broadway and is flanked by Chinatown. From North to South, it stretches from Canal Street to about Vesey Street. It’s topped by SoHo and the Financial District bumps up against the southern border.

There’s so much more to know about Tribeca beyond its bounds, so here’s a few additional details to get you acquainted:

  • Arts and culture: Even though this neighborhood may have a slower pace than other parts of lower Manhattan, it doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to see. Outfitted with many industrial buildings from a time where the neighborhood housed a wholesale food market, the structures are ideal for art galleries. In fact there are around 41 of them, including Theta (with it’s entrance through a basement vault hatch) on Franklin Street, and Chapter NY on Walker Street. If moving pictures are the type of art you appreciate the most, you’d be remiss to miss the annual Tribeca Film Festival which found its home in the area after the September 11th attacks in an effort to restore the spirit of the city.
  • Historic districts and architecture: The artistry can also be found on the outsides of the buildings as well. The neighborhood has a number of pre-Civil War buildings featuring Neo-Grec designs and cast iron facades. In fact, the city’s Landmark Preservation Commission has designated 5 historic districts (Tribeca North, Tribeca South, Tribeca South Extension, Tribeca West, and Tribeca East) within the neighborhood to preserve the historical exteriors block by block. Mixed in with the old brick and mortar are the newer structural standouts, such as 56 Leonard Street which looks a lot like a tall stack of glass blocks. The building at 12 Warren Street, with its giant carved quarry stones, also has that stacked appearance with random blocks jutting out into the sky.
  • Cost of living: On the low-end of what it costs to live in Tribeca, it’s worth noting what is the same across the city. Being in lower Manhattan, public transportation options from the city’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) are plentiful so you don’t have to spend a lot to get around. And, at $2.75 per one-way ride, it’s a pretty economical way to get around a major metropolitan map. Whether shopping is a favorite past-time or you mostly just pick up the essentials, it’s good to factor in the combined city and state sales tax, at 8.875%, to your final bill. Another cost you’ll encounter is for housing. Pre-war walk ups in the area may cost less, but the same type of buildings will be cheaper in other neighborhoods. That said, it’s noted that living spaces in Tribeca are a bit larger than surrounding areas. What’ll these cost you? If you’re in the market to rent, you’ll notice the average monthly cost is around $5,295 for a one-bedroom apartment. To own one of the architectural addresses in this part of the city is quite a bit more than in other parts of Manhattan. The median listing price for homes are around $4.7 million and the median price per square foot is at $2k. To top off these prices with another inexpensive way to get around: purchasing a pair of comfortable walking shoes. Being in this area puts you within easy walking distance of other great places to visit: West Village, Chinatown, and the Financial District to name a few.
  • Dining in the triangle: For every person, every occasion, and every craving, there’s a spot in Tribeca that’ll serve up something tasty. If you live for brunch with your pals, Locanda Verde serves up Italian fare with a side of the potential for a celebrity sighting. Speaking of famous folks, a stop at the legendary local hangout The Odeon will have you looking for the same seats that Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and your favorite former SNL cast members used. For a more intimate setting if you’re going on a date, you might consider Frenchette for a buttery and wine-focused feast just right for romance. Or, if date night has been rescheduled due to the big game, the sports bar that has it all: beer, bites, and ball is Puffy’s Tavern. If you’re like plenty of New Yorkers who can enjoy a bagel any time of day, you may want to inform your vote for the best bagel in the city by hitting up Zucker’s Bagels & Smoked Fish on Chambers Street. Perhaps you’ll be wooed by their Max Zucker signature sandwich: smoked whitefish salad, beefsteak tomato slices, and red onion on your choice of circular dough. No matter where you place your fork though, you’re bound to get a great bite.
  • Spending your free time: New Yorkers work hard, so they can enjoy their free time in this great city. In Tribeca specifically, there’s plenty to do that’s worth cashing in your recreational time. For starters, Poets House on River Terrace is a poetry library and community space dedicated to poets sharing their work with one another. Continuing on a literary journey, visiting the Mysterious Bookshop, that specializes in mystery fiction, can be just the thing to fill up your bookshelves with new thrillers and crime novels if you find they’re lacking. If you’re ready to put pen to paper yourself, you may find a trip to the Fountain Pen Hospital a charming stop. There, you’ll find vintage writing implements, ink, and even repair services for your favorite fancy pens. No matter if you’re seeking inspiration for your next creative endeavor or respite from the busy city life, the nearby Hudson River Park may be just the spots you’re looking for. The Park’s Pier 25 is closest to the neighborhood and is home to an 18-hole miniature golf course, playgrounds, a skatepark, and volleyball courts if you’re ready to play. It’s also a great place to watch the water and take views of the sailboats.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
