Ticket PreSale: March 7-13, 2011

Tribeca Neighborhood Guide and Tribeca Hotels

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.

Robert De Niro and colleagues founded the Tribeca Film Festival in 2001, following the attacks on the World Trade Center to spur the revitalization of lower Manhattan. The Festival’s mission focuses on assisting filmmakers to reach the broadest possible audience, enabling the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema and promoting New York City as a major filmmaking center.

Tribeca Hotels: Smyth Tribeca Hotel, Cosmopolitan Hotel, W New York Downtown, Greenwich Hotel (owned by DeNiro), Tribeca Grand Hotel

Film Festival Events: Tribeca Drive-In Screen will be set up behind the World Financial Center along the Hudson. All Tribeca Drive-In programs start at 6 p.m., with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis. The movies begin at dusk, about 8:15 p.m.

Spring Spa Week New York City


April 11-17, 2011
Reservations Open: March 14, 2011
Fall 2011: October 10 – 16

Every spring and fall, NYC’s most coveted spas offer their top treatments for just $50! Get a manicure/pedicure, facial, body scrub, laser hair removal, laser facial and hundreds more treatments at a fraction of the usual value. Appointments book up early, so make sure to jump on the phone when reservations open.

NYC Insider Tip: My favorite spa is Great Jones (above), because of their amazing water lounge, steam and sauna. It is great way to escape to the bustling city, especially in the winter. However, they don’t have the best spa week deals anymore. Another great spa that partakes in Spa Week is Elizabeth Arden.
