Things to Do

Washington Market Park (Washington/Jay Sts) – playground and weekly farmers market.

Hudson River Park and River Promenade – cross the West Side Highway at Chambers to enjoy a stroll from Battery Park City to Chelsea along the water. Watch the runners, bikers, roller bladers, views of the Hudson and Statue of Liberty, rent a Kayak (free), stop at the Nike Runners kiosk and “test drive” sneakers.

Duane Park, Finn Square and Tribeca Park – three small areas surrounded by history and old-meets-new architecture. Check out the converted warehouses that are now some of America’s most expensive homes.

A stroll through TriBeCa reveals upscale eateries like Nobu, MR CHOW, Chanterelle, and Bouley, local staples like Bubby’s and Odeon, and sophisticated retail options such as Issey Miyake and Stephen Alan.

The multi-week Film Festival takes place at various venues, mostly near Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street and showcases every film genre while attracting blockbuster global celebrities, probably more so than Fashion Week.

Recommended Restaurants

Bubby’s  (120 Hudson St, N Moore) – one of the city’s best  brunch spots, spicy  Bloody Mary’s, comfort food and great for kids. Long weekend lines. 

Nobu (105 Hudson, Franklin) – top NYC sushi restaurant ($$$$). More casual, less expensive (but not cheap) version at Nobu Next Door.

Tribeca Grill (375 Greenwich St, Franklin)– owned by DeNiro and buddies, often a patron, along with much of his crowd. Food is good, not the best.

Bouley (163 Duane St, Hudson) – top NYC French, $45 lunch, $85 dinner. Wonderful  food and a view overlooking Duane Park.  Craving dessert or a snack? Bouley Bakery is rated for its brunch and best hot chocolate in NYC.

Odeon (145 W Bway, Thomas) – American Brasserie known for being the original inventor of the “Sex and the City” cosmopolitan.

Bubbles Lounge (228 W Bway, White St) – night spot, champagne lounge with oysters and caviar

More Casual/inexpensive local restaurant favorites:

  • Puffy’s Tavern  (81 Hudson St, Harrison/Jay) – dive bar with cheap beer, 
  • Mudville 9 (126 Chambers St, W Bway/ Church) – great sports bar and wings,
  • Capri Cafe (165 Church St, Chambers/ Reade) – small Italian restaurant owned by 2 Italian brothers with great fresh pasta (and a $6.95 prix-fixe lunch deal). Cash only.
  • Kitchenette (156 Chambers St, W Bway) –  very kid friendly
  • Petite Abeille (W Bway) –  Belgian mussels and fries, nice outdoor patio.
  • Ninja New York (25 Hudson St @ Duane St, Tribeca) – Great for Kids! Be whisked underground by elevator, led to the dining area via a secret path lined with “ninjas” ready to scare you, then brought into the castle where each private chamber houses a single table. Fairly pricey for the small portions, but the food is tasty, and the price is for the whole experience.
  • Thalassa (179 Franklin Street) – From Santorini-style spanakopita to moussaka à la Mykonos, the food here is authentic Greek, since the restaurant is owned by a family of Greek-food importers. The townhouse style restaurant offers tables draped in white tablecloths, surfaces scatted with pottery from Argos and the white marble has been sourced from Thasos.

 

Liberty-View-Chinese-NYC

Liberty View Chinese Restaurant 21 South End Ave (West Thames St), Battery Park City 

A reasonably-priced, family-friendly restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The best part? Lovely views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and New Jersey. Is it the best Chinese Food in the City? No, but it’s really good and certainly the Chinese restaurant with the best NYC views – plus you can print coupons directly from their website!


Shopping

Franklin Street – cobblestone street with converted warehouses that are now art galleries, home décor shops, antique stores and bars

SoHo Photo Gallery (15 White St, Church) – over 100 artists and photographers exhibit their work in a converted egg warehouse
