Top 10 Apartment Buildings in TriBeCa
Why is it that TriBeca is the city’s most popular neighborhood? Is it because it has the nicest cast-iron nautical school fence? Is it because it’s got a nice group of small Federal buildings nestled next to the great Independence Plaza apartment towers? Is it because its proximity to the World Trade Center means it is also close to the WinterGarden of the World Financial Center at Battery Park City? Is it because Lady Liberty is regularly passed by great big oceanliners once again? Perhaps it is because it’s not far from Wall Street and public transportation and places where Robert de Niro and his mavens stroll about thinking cinematically.
