The majority of the buildings in 10013 were designed for industry, yet proportionally speaking, they make for exceedingly luxurious living that is now being mimicked by architects and demanded by home buyers everywhere. High ceilings, large windows, exposed brick and quality interiors that are as custom to the apartment as the artistic individuals who colonized the neighborhood during the 1960’s and 70’s, not only add to the community and its abodes being diverse, but illustrate an inherent resilience to carve out a residential landscape and grow when times have been difficult. Couple these qualities with cobble stone streets, Hudson River Park sunsets and thriving restaurants, and you have the private and comfortable alternative to the finest neighborhoods in New York, with the ease of enjoying a superior caliber of lifestyle.

“TriBeCa is one of the most unique neighborhoods in the World and its inception as the residential locale of choice is something which could only have been conceived in New York City.”

I’ve seen the neighborhood change dramatically…mostly for the good. It’s off the beaten path, yet has so much to offer. You’ll find a chic boutique or restaurant underneath classic tenement buildings and next door a new condo with starting prices of $10M. It’s a fabulous mixture of old and new, yet even the new feels old.

Financial District – Ariel Cohen, Douglas Elliman’s The Ariel Cohen Team

The Financial District (aka FiDi) is one of the most dynamic and historic neighborhoods in Manhattan and it’s easily the most accessible, with 7 subway lines, 2 bus lines, multiple ferry stops and quick access to the FDR and West Side Highway – there’s even a heliport in FiDi.

From top restaurants, to boutiques and luxury retailers, parks and museums, this neighborhood has something for everyone. In recent years, it has transformed into a 24/7 residential community and will continue to evolve and welcome new businesses and residents as new residential developments are being planned, tech companies move in and One World Trade Center is nears completion.

Ariel ‘s Suggestions:

01La Maison du Chocolat
La Maison du Chocolat is the ultimate destination for those with a sweet tooth. This international chocolatier serves up specialty chocolates and other decadent treats with artful presentation. You have to try their hot chocolate. Nearest subway: Wall Street

02Stone Street
This historic cobble-stoned street is filled with popular bars and restaurants, like Ulysses and The Dubliner. During the warmer months, the street is filled with long picnic tables, where you can sit and enjoy a drink or a meal.  Nearest subway: Wall Street

03Andaz, Wall Street
This Hyatt-managed hotel is home to three of my favorite FiDi hotspots: Bar Seven Five, a sophisticated bar and lounge; Wall & Water, a must-try farm-to-table restaurant; and, lastly, a seasonal outdoor biergarten, which is a great place to catch up with friends over delicious brews and bites. Nearest subway: Wall Street

04South Street Seaport
There is so much to do at the South Street Seaport, from shopping and dining to neighborhood events. You can even catch a movie outside in the summer.  Nearest subway: Fulton Street

05Imagination Playground
My kids just love this playground. It’s fun for them to explore, climb and expel some of their unlimited energy.  Nearest subway: Fulton Street

East Village – Sergio Ayo, BOND New York Properties

Battery Park City is a 92-acre planned community on the southwestern tip of Manhattan. The area was developed to house the many business professionals who work in the financial district nearby. Using soil, rocks and dredging from nearby construction, Battery Park City emerged from the Hudson River in a land reclamation project. Since then, families have been tumbling in to enjoy the scenic views, fresh air and spaciousness of the neighborhood. Luxury residential, commercial and retail buildings define the carefully laid out neighborhood. Among these destinations are the World Financial Center and North Cove, a large yacht harbor. Battery Park City is a forward-looking neighborhood with numerous LEED green certified buildings and parks along the river where residents can be found jogging, playing mini golf or taking sailing lessons. Once part of the Hudson River, Battery Park City is now a residential oasis for those who can afford the lifestyle.
