Capturing TriBeca in New York City
Besides getting its fame for being the home of the annual TriBeCa Film Festival, this neighborhood finds itself with galleries and restaurants. Robert De Niro's ties to TriBeCa is evident. Not only is he the founding member of the TriBeca Film Festival which was established to to support independent films, he also owns the Tribeca Grill restaurant in the area on Greenwich Street. One feels calm walking along the streets of TriBeca with not much sense of urgency which is rare for New York City. Amid the redbrick buildings and former warehouses now converted into art galleries, antique stores, and bars, there is a sense of community here. Go west towards Hudson River Park and stroll along the Hudson River for views of the New Jersey skyline just across the water.
