"Short Cobblestoned Street- Mostly Independence Plaza"

The cobblestones are nice - but other than a row of relocated brownstones, it's mostly the middle class Independence Plaza....
  • Short street, not that emblematic of Tribeca
  • Not a big nightlife scene

"A Tribeca Hideaway"

This tiny street tucked away in the riverside corner of Tribeca is an ideal location for fitness buffs. Just steps away from the West Side Highway - with its bike paths, pedestrian walkways, outdoor cafes, and beautiful trees (the noise and grime of the cars are almost completely obscured by a makeshift "hedge'), this street has parkside credentials while still maintaining its downtown vibe. Surrounded by galleries (including one, Michael Perez, on the street itself), Harrison Street is distinctively "artsy" while still feeling very much liveable, in contrast to other downtown streets. Head to locals' delight "Peace and Love Cafe" or splurge at The Harrison Restaurant. Mary-Ann's Tribeca Mexican is another outlet popular with locals. The street is physically beautiful, with a number of tenements and townhouses that look distinctively "historical," as opposed to the modern monstrosities found in some parts of the city - Harrison Street, with its greenery, cafes, and townhouses, feels in many ways like a village rather than a city, and is ideally suited to those looking for the perfect melding of village and urban life.

"Miss the old Harrison"

The Harrison street of a few years ago was a beautiful walk where trendy laughs and upscale businesses ruled the roost, but construction and congestion has turned it into a hell of a place to be, especially on foot. It's loud and rather irritating at times. It's sad that the beautiful street of old seems to be missing in action.

"Trendy Tribeca is a traffic Nightmare!"

Harrison Street, in Tribeca was once a lovely area with trendy and expensive loft style apartments and great businesses abound. While Harrison still maintains it's style a heavy construction project has robbed it of it's charm. The project is going to involve repaving the roads and will likely take years to complete. Sidewalks have been blocked off and overall this is no longer an area that most would want to travel on a regular basis if the construction sounds bother them any.
