Way less of a corporate sell-out neighborhood than SoHo. Artsy and very family-friendly. Home to Stuyvesant, P.S. 234, P.S./I.S. 81, ECC, and many pre-schools. Lots of expensive restaurants, an awesome park, and about 10 different Starbucks establishments. You can get there on pretty much every existing subway line.
TriBeCa rocks, biatch!

Someone who looks really bad. In reference to the TriBeCa area of New York City where all the artsy people hang out and live. They dont dress very well, or arent in fashion, so they are TRIBECA!!!!! Usually screamed at the unsuspecting, or mentioned among friends about others.
OH MY GOD BECKY, look at that Tribeca over there. What the fuck was she thinking when she got dressed this morning.

TriBeCa Native is non-profit organization based in lower Manhattan founded by Nicole Bartelme soon after her creation of the TriBeCa Film Festival. It's mission is to find sustainable solutions to NY's neighborhood's challenges supporting job training, environmental cleanup activities and education initiatives.
Through TriBeCa Native's initiative, TriBeCa Trail, I found the historic plaque celebrating where Martin Guitars started their first workshop in 1833.

Nicole Bartelme originated the Tribeca Film Festival, based in lower Manhattan with its focus on independent filmmakers and films with innovative sound tracks. Proceeds of the festival were to benefit ACE -the Association For Community Employment . A component of her blue print included a family day to celebrate film in the community, to appease rather than alienate its residents and enjoin them into the festivities. The late April dates she chose corresponded with potential Los Angles film buyers on route to Europe for the Cannes Film Festival. Bartelme, engaged in legalities with Jane Rosenthal of the Tribeca Film Center, relinquished all rights after 9/11, 2001. The Tribeca Film Festival was then launched in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff. The Festival’s mission is to promote New York City as a major filmmaking center and allow its filmmakers to reach the broadest possible audience. By upholding a belief in the artistic process as a means to tell the stories of loss and redemption, fear and prosperity, chaos and revolution with the spirit of independent film at the helm.

The Tribeca Film Festival is anchored in Tribeca and takes place in additional neighborhoods throughout Manhattan, featuring film screenings, special events, concerts, a family street fair, and panel discussions.

The TriBeCa Film Festival, pioneered by Nicole Bartelme, has screened over 1300 films from over 80 countries since its first festival in 2002.
The TriBeCa Film Festival's initial focus encompassed films with a humanitarian message, great sound tracks and film technology. With organizer Jane Rosenthal at the helm the festival has grown to encompass films of many genres: from blockbusters to documentaries.
