Heading south out of SoHo and crossing over Canal Street, you’ll enter TriBeCa, short for Triangle Below Canal. Home to many of the city’s toniest restaurants, encompassing about 40 blocks between Canal, Chambers, West, and Church Streets, the district is often referred to as another SoHo. Yet large sections of TriBeCa remain quiet and residential, with a 19th-century feel.
Like SoHo, TriBeCa’s main thoroughfares are Broadway and West Broadway, though some of its best cast-iron buildings are on side streets, especially White Street.
