Tribeca, originally written as TriBeCa, is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, whose name is a portmanteau from "Triangle Below Canal Street". The "triangle", which is actually more of a trapezoidal shape, is bounded by Canal Street, West Street, Broadway, and either Chambers or Vesey Streets. Tribeca is one of a number of neighborhoods in New York City whose name is either a portmanteau or an acronym, including SoHo, NoHo, Nolita, NoMad, and Dumbo. By many criteria, Tribeca could be considered the best place to live in the city. It enjoys minuscule crime levels, great schools, tons of transit, well-planned waterfront access, and light-filled loft-type apartments in painstakingly rehabbed industrial buildings. It also has the distinction of having overtaken the Upper East Side as the city's wealthiest district. Some of Tribeca's most notable residents, past and present, include: Beyoncé, Eric Bogosian, Edward Burns, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Connelly, Daniel Craig, Billy Crystal, Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lena Dunham, James Gandolfini, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Heather Graham, Mariska Hargitay, Josh Hartnett, Chanel Iman, Michael Imperioli, Jay-Z, Derek Jeter, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Karlie Kloss, Karolina Kurkova, David Letterman, Adriana Lima, Chris Martin, Debra Messing, Petra Nemcova, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mike Piazza, Amy Poehler, Daniel Radcliffe, Kelly Ripa, Gary Sinise, Jon Stewart, Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift, Uma Thurman, Jessica Biel, and Kate Winslet.
Tribeca Film Festival
The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff. The mission of the festival is "to enable the international film community and the general public to experience the power of film by redefining the film festival experience." The Tribeca Film Festival was founded to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking center and to contribute to the long-term recovery of lower Manhattan. The Festival's program line-up includes a variety of independent films including documentaries, narrative features and shorts, as well as a program of family-friendly films. The Festival also features panel discussions with personalities in the entertainment world and a music lounge produced with ASCAP to showcase artists. One of the more distinctive components of the Festival is its Artists Awards program in which emerging and renowned artists celebrate filmmakers by providing original works of art that are given to the filmmakers' competition winners. Past artists of the Artists Awards program have included Chuck Close, Alex Katz, and Julian Schnabel. The festival now draws an estimated three million people—including often-elusive celebrities from the worlds of art, film, and music—and generates $600 million annually.
