Balcony green spaces will offer residents their own personalized views of the Hudson River—a true rarity in Tribeca.Stroll a little farther along the Hudson to visit Hudson River Park and its abundant offerings. Pier 25, the longest pier in the park, has its own 18-hole miniature golf course as well as sand volleyball courts and moorings for small boats.
Elsewhere in the park, a boardwalk meanders through fields of flowers and natural grasses. Peer through one of the telescopes near Pier 34 to scope out gulls and other waterfowl to immerse yourself in a natural environment that could just as easily be miles away from the city. Indulge in sushi, sashimi, or tempura at the iconic Nobu, co-owned by actor and TriBeca resident, Robert De Niro. Nobu New York, the flagship restaurant of chef Nobu Matsuhisa, replicates the natural beauty of Japan with its birch trees, river-rock wall, and wood floors. The food at Nobu is even more notable, earning a Michelin star as well as three stars from The New York Times.
For the days when comfort food is the ideal dish, step into Bubby’s, another Tribeca favorite. Enjoy a plate of barbecue ribs or chicken and waffles, a Reuben sandwich with some matzo ball soup, or all the favorites of a relaxing brunch.When you’re feeling a little adventurous, a visit to Ninja New York is sure to delight.

As the name implies, this restaurant also offers a new twist on the ninja arts for a truly magical dining experience. It’s especially worth the trip with children, who are sure to delight in the ninja performances.
Indulge in a day of shopping with stops at Mysterious Bookshop—one of the nation’s oldest genre bookstores—and The Brandy Library, where “librarians” help you pick out a favorite brandy from the 900 bottles displayed along its walls. Take a class at The Brandy Library’s Spirit School to achieve expert status on your favorite spirits, or stop in for a drink paired with an hors d’oeuvre such as steak tartare. Continue your shopping at Patron of the New, an eclectic, upscale shop offering everything from apparel to housewares and even a few Parisian antiques.
Walks through the neighborhood wouldn’t be complete without at least one landmark-spotting experience. Grab a photo opportunity with friends in front of FDNY’s Hook and Ladder Company Number 8—the fictional headquarters for Ghostbusters—but don’t ask to slide down the firepole. This famous movie location is still a functioning firehouse.Wrap up your day with a little theater with a twist at The Flea, which features bite-sized serial plays written by up-and-coming playwrights.
