"Swarms of people and luxury buildings"

There's not a lot going on in the 6th Avenue area of this neighborhood outside of parks, knock off shopping and too many people. This street is always jam packed right here. It's noisy and smelly and impossible to catch a cab. But, if you like designer fake handbags, 6th and Tribeca is the place to be.
There's a little park called Duarte Square right at 6th and Canal that's nice for all of the luxury high rise residents that live on this street. As you cross Canal, that's pretty much all there is. One of my good friends used to live in one of these buildings. They are new and beautiful but crazy expensive and surrounded by traffic. You can't really hear the noise if you're high enough up, but you are assaulted with it the minute you exit the building. There's a completely glass condo building right on the corner that used the original spine of the old warehouses as the base.
There's another park at Lispenard and a bunch of luxury buildings with the tenement looking AT&T building nestled in between them. It's a good thing there are so many parks because the majority of this area is the yuppie set with small children. I wouldn't designate this strip as a family kind of street because it's too busy, but young families are everywhere around here.
6th ends at the Tribeca Grand which is a hip, boutique hotel big with the artsy set. They have a lot of swanky parties at this place and the building is pretty cool.
I wouldn't want to live on any ave and 6th in Tribeca is no exception to say the least. There's nothing in the way of art, bars or restaurants and there are way too many people. But, a lot of wealthier people seem to like this street . . .for some reason I don't understand.
  • Nice apartments
  • Several parks
  • Noisy
