Downtown West, from Canal Street to Vesey Street, and West Street to Broadway.
Tribeca's reputation as a mecca for celebrities is only part of the mystique of this downtown neighborhood. Sure, plenty of bold-faced names call the ''Triangle Below Canal'' home. But so do lots of non-famous folk, who are drawn by the lush parks, renowned public schools and breathtaking views of the Hudson River. In fact, Amidst the former warehouses, cast-iron buildings and cobbled streets is a surprisingly family-friendly community, which thrives in balanced co-existence with galleries, performance spaces and some of the city's best restaurants.
