Tribeca
Tribeca
/traɪˈbɛkə/, originally written as TriBeCa, is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Its name is a syllabic abbreviation from "Triangle Below Canal Street". The "triangle", or more accurately, a trapezoid, is bounded by Canal Street, West Street, Broadway, and either Chambers, Vesey, or Murray Streets. The neighborhood began as farmland, became residential in the early 19th century, then transitioned into a mercantile one centered on produce, dry goods, and textiles, before being colonized by artists and then actors, models, entrepreneurs and other celebrities. The neighborhood is home to the Tribeca
Tribeca
Film Festival, which was created in response to the September 11 attacks, to reinvigorate the neighborhood and downtown after the destruction caused by the terrorist attacks.[1]

Name[edit] Tribeca
Tribeca
is one of a number of neighborhoods in New York City
New York City
whose names are syllabic abbreviations or acronyms, including SoHo (South of Houston Street), NoHo (North of Houston Street), Nolita
Nolita
(North of Little Italy), NoMad
NoMad
(North of Madison Square), DUMBO
DUMBO
(District Under the Manhattan Bridge
Manhattan Bridge
Overpass), and BoCoCa, the last of which is actually a collection of neighborhoods (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens). The name was coined in the early 1970s and originally applied to the area bounded by Broadway and Canal, Lispenard, and Church Streets. which appears to be a triangle on city planning maps. Residents of this area formed the TriBeCa Artists' Co-op in filing legal documents connected to a 1973 zoning dispute. According to a local historian, the name was misconstrued by a newspaper reporter as applying to a much larger area, which is how it came to be the name of the current neighborhood.[2] History[edit] The area now known as Tribeca, or TriBeCa, was farmed by Dutch settlers to New Amsterdam, and was later part of the large tract of land given to Trinity Church by Queen Anne in 1705. In 1807, the church built St. John's Chapel on Varick Street
Varick Street
and then laid out St. John's Park, bounded by Laight Street, Varick Street, Ericsson Place, and Hudson Street. The church also built Hudson Square, a development of brick houses which surrounded the park, which would become the model for Gramercy Park. The area was among the first residential neighborhoods developed in New York City
New York City
beyond the city's colonial boundaries of the city, and remained primarily residential until the 1840s.[1] Beginning in the 1840s and then continuing after the American Civil War, shipping in New York City
New York City
– which then consisted only of Manhattan
Manhattan
– shifted in large part from the East River
East River
and the area around South Street to the Hudson River, where the longer piers could more easily handle the larger ships which were then coming into use. In addition, the dredging of the sand bars which lay across the entrance to New York Harbor
New York Harbor
from the Atlantic Ocean
Atlantic Ocean
made it easier for ship to navigate to the piers on the Hudson, rather than use the "back door" via the East River
East River
to the piers there.[3][4] Later, the Hudson River piers also received freight via railroad cars ferried across the river from New Jersey.[5]

The increased shipping encouraged the expansion of the Washington Market – a wholesale produce market which opened in 1813 as "Bear Market" – from the original market buildings to buildings throughout its neighborhood, taking over houses and warehouses to use for the storage of produce, including butter, cheese and eggs.[4][1] In the mid-19th century, the neighborhood was the center of the dry goods and textile industries in the city, and St. John's Park
St. John's Park
was turned into a freight depot.[1] Later, the area also featured fireworks outlets, pets stores, radios – which were clustered in a district which was displaced by the building of the World Trade Center – sporting goods, shoes, and church supplies.[5] Eventually, in the 20th century, after the construction of the Holland Tunnel from 1920 to 1927, and the transition of freight shipping from ships and railroads to trucks,[6] the truck traffic generated by the market and other businesses caused considerable congestion in the area, which provoked the building between 1929 and 1951 of the Miller Highway, an elevated roadway which came to be called the West Side Highway, the purpose of which was to handle through automobile traffic, which thus did not have to deal with the truck congestion at street level. Because of a policy of "deferred maintenance", the elevated structure began to fall apart in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and the highway was shut down in 1973. The roadway project planned to replace it, called Westway, was fought by neighborhood activists, and was eventually killed by environmental concerns. Instead, West Street was rebuilt to handle through traffic.[4][1] The produce market moved to Hunts Point in the Bronx in the 1960s, and the city put an urban renewal plan into effect which involved the demolition of many old buildings, with the intent of building high-rise residential towers, office buildings and schools. Some of these were constructed, including Independence Plaza in 1975 on Washington Street, the Borough of Manhattan
Manhattan
Community College in 1980, and Washington Market Park
Washington Market Park
in 1981.[1] Some warehouse buildings were converted to residential use, and lofts began to be utilized by artists, who lived and worked in their spaces, a model which had been pioneered in nearby SoHo.[4] In the early 1970s, a couple of years after artists in SoHo were able to legalize their live/work situation, artist and resident organizations in the area to the south, known then as "Washington Market" or the "Lower West Side", sought to gain similar zoning status for their neighborhood. One of the neighborhood groups called themselves the "Triangle Below Canal Block Association", and, as activists had done in SoHo, shortened the group’s name to the Tribeca
Tribeca
Block Association. The Tribeca
Tribeca
name came to be applied to the area south of Canal Street, between Broadway and West Street, extending south to – as variously defined – Chambers, Vesey,[7][8] or Murray Street.[1]

Development[edit] Several streets in the area are named after Anthony Lispenard Bleecker and the Lispenard family. Beach Street was created in the late 18th century and was the first street on or adjacent to the farm of Anthony Lispenard Bleecker, which was just south of what is now Canal Street; the name of the street is a corruption of the name of Paul Bache, a son-in-law of Anthony Lispenard.[9][10] Lispenard Street in Tribeca
Tribeca
is named for the Lispenard family,[11] and Bleecker Street
Bleecker Street
in NoHo was named for Anthony Lispenard Bleecker.[11] By the mid-19th century the area transformed into a commercial center, with large numbers of store and loft buildings constructed along Broadway in the 1850s and 1860s. Development in the area was spurred by New York City
New York City
Subway construction, namely the extension of the IRT Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line (today's 1, ​2, and ​3 trains), which opened for service in 1918, and the accompanying extension of Seventh Avenue and the widening of Varick Street
Varick Street
during subway construction in 1914, both of resulted in better access to the area for vehicles and for subway riders. The area was also served by the IRT Ninth Avenue Line, an elevated train line on Greenwich Street demolished in 1940. However, by the 1960s, Tribeca's industrial base had all but vanished, and the predominance of empty commercial space attracted many artists to the area in the 1970s. Since the 1980s, large scale conversion of the area has transformed Tribeca
Tribeca
into an upscale residential area. In 1996, the Tribeca
Tribeca
Open Artist Studio Tour was founded as a non-profit, artist-run organization with the mission to empower the working artists of Tribeca
Tribeca
while providing an educational opportunity for the public. For 15 years, the annual free walking tour through artist studios in Tribeca
Tribeca
has allowed people to get a unique glimpse into the lives of Tribeca's best creative talent.[12] Tribeca
Tribeca
suffered both physically and financially after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, but government grants and incentives helped the area rebound fairly quickly.[13] The Tribeca Film Festival
Tribeca Film Festival
was established to help contribute to the long-term recovery of lower Manhattan
Manhattan
after 9/11. The festival also celebrates New York City
New York City
as a major filmmaking center. The mission of the film festival is "to enable the international film community and the general public to experience the power of film by redefining the film festival experience." Tribeca
Tribeca
is a popular filming location for movies and television shows. By the early 21st century, Tribeca
Tribeca
became one of Manhattan's most fashionable and desirable neighborhoods, well known for its celebrity residents. Its streets teem with art galleries, boutique shops, restaurants, and bars.[1] In 2006, Forbes
Forbes
magazine ranked its 10013 zip code as New York City's most expensive (however, the adjacent, low-income neighborhood of Chinatown, also uses the 10013 zip code).[14][15] As of 2010[update], Tribeca
Tribeca
was the safest neighborhood in New York City, according to NYPD and CompStat statistics.[16]

Tribeca
is dominated by former industrial buildings that have been converted into residential buildings and lofts, similar to those of the neighboring SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the neighborhood was a center of the textile/cotton trade. Notable buildings in the neighborhoods include the historic neo-Renaissance Textile Building built in 1901 and designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, the Powell Building, a designated Landmark on Hudson Street, which was designed by Carrère and Hastings
Carrère and Hastings
and built in 1892.[17] At 73 Worth Street there is a handsome row of neo-Renaissance White Buildings built at the end of the Civil War in 1865. Other notable buildings include the New York Telephone Company building at 140 West Street, between Vesey and Barclay, with its Mayan-inspired Art Deco
Art Deco
motif, and the former New York Mercantile Exchange at 6 Harrison Street. During the late 1960s and '70s, abandoned and inexpensive Tribeca lofts became hot-spot residences for young artists and their families because of the seclusion of lower Manhattan
Manhattan
and the vast living space. Jim Stratton, a Tribeca
Tribeca
resident since this period, wrote the 1977 nonfiction book entitled Pioneering in the Urban Wilderness, detailing his experiences renovating lower Manhattan

warehouses into residences.
