Tribeca / Soho at a Glance
Where trendy fashionistas intermingle with young executives, the TriBeCa/SoHo area features mind-blowing architecture and hip, up-and-coming shopping. With the combination of many restored buildings and modern constructions, this neighborhood takes high-class and trendy elegance to a new level, combining old and new styles for something truly unique. It’s no wonder real estate prices here are so expensive. Find lofts, brownstones, rowhouses, modern apartment buildings, warehouses, and more. TriBeCa, termed for being the "Triangle Below Canal" offers the option of many quiet streets in an area that’s highly accessible and marked by some of the city’s best shopping. SoHo features a convergence of art and fashion. You get the best of both worlds: the bustle of city life, mixed with the quietude of the suburbs. Though there are still some remnants of the industrial era in this neighborhood, building owners are snatching up the real estate fast, often converting it into flexible commercial spaces or single family residences.
Bordering the Hudson River to the West, and the cultural pockets of Chinatown and Little Italy to the East, TriBeCa and SoHo are home to some of Manhattan’s finest properties. The many artful and architectural wonders of TriBeCa make it a hotspot for NYC celebrities. SoHo, no less an amazing neighborhood, is the place for boutiques to be, and where many fashion brands and executives call home. TriBeCa, short for Triangle Below Canal St., is like a mini suburb in Lower Manhattan, with many single family homes and smaller buildings coupled with old, industrial properties. SoHo is near Greenwich Village, NoHo, and NoLita. Both areas are jam packed with trendy restaurants, boutique retail stores, and some of the hottest clubs, bars, and lounges in New York. The Textile Building is one of the most famous buildings in the area, as is the American Thread Building, both vestiges of the fashion manufacturing industry that was prominent here in the early 20th century. Access to this area is simple, with the Holland Tunnel just around the corner and a number of subways heading in all directions.
