Thread: Tribeca - worth a visit? a stay?

  1. #1

    Default Tribeca - worth a visit? a stay?

    Thinking of visiting NYC in the near future. Would it be a good idea to stay, hang around Tribeca (obviously not exclusively there) kinda make it the home base for a few days?

    Some great restaurants & shopping in Tribeca. Also definitely worth it to spend a couple of hours walking the streets (check out the side streets) to see some fantastic renovations of great old NYC buildings.

    Tribeca is full of anomalies and contrasts:

    1. It's New York's most expensive residential district, though much of it looks a little gritty and industrial.

    2. It has nightlife and glitzy restaurants, though it seems quiet.

    3. It seems out-of-the-way but it's really convenient to most places in Manhattan because major subway lines are at your doorstep on Chambers Street, and because Ground Zero, the Hudson River, City Hall, Greenwich Village, SoHo, Chinatown and South Street Seaport are all short walks. Off the beaten path but near the beaten path. You won't find many tourists in Tribeca.

    4. It has an affordable hotel: http://www.cosmohotel.com/

    Luca, are you the guy who used to post on Cyburbia? If so, I'd send some specific recommendations your way.

    Expensive. As long as we're talking Tribeca expensive, try Danube, celebrity-chef David Bouley's take on Secession Vienna: mock-Klimt on the wall, mostly Austrian-tinged food, and dessert such as you'd expect from a place that looks as romantic as this.

    Also, a Tribeca classic: The Odeon Cafe, still hip after all these years, pioneers of nouvelle cuisine (small portions), and right near Ground Zero.

    One time I walk in this beautiful Japanese restaurant in Tribeca... but I just can't remember the name or the street. I will love to go there. I only went there to check it out after I had diner at another restaurant. Well this waiter told us about it so we went to check it out that night.

    Ok I remember it had an Ice sculputure in the middle of the room and a huge bell above? Any clues? Thanks.
