Located in Lower Manhattan and bounded by Broadway, Canal, West and Chambers Streets, Tribeca is one of the swankiest places to call home in the city. The area was put on the map in the 1960's when many budding artists began renovating abandoned industrial buildings and warehouses for more spacious art studios and living quarters.

The area still maintains much of its architectural history with famous art-deco and neo-Renaissance influences in buildings such as the 32 Avenue of Americas building, The Textile Building, The Powell Building and The American Thread Building.
