"The outskirts of Tribeca"

I live the farthest east in Tribeca you can get without being in Chinatown, so its missing a lot of the ritzy-ness Tribeca is known for. Which, as a poor college student, its probably for the better. Being at the intersection of Little Italy, Tribeca, Chinatown and the Civil buildings is a pretty great combo (except when State Corrections trucks are right outside your building). When you want a nice (if occasionally over-priced meal) Greenwich Street is a short walk away. If you want to eat cheap, head into one of Chinatown's glorious dumpling houses. Or you can walk a little longer to have a fantastic Italian meal, and burn the pasta-induced calories on the way home. I do here sirens every time I wake up and go to bed, but c'mon, were in New York City...The area can get hectic on weekends cause of Tourists on Canal & Broadway, but for the most part traffic is livable. Even though your pretty far from Central Park, recreation is great, because Hudson Parkway is just a few blocks away.
