Tribeca is not by any means the most happening neighborhood in the country. I can't imagine paying a lot of money to live there.

Don't kill me for saying this, but I believe Inwood is the best area of Manhattan. I love the way it looks-- still like New York from the 70's, and the parks are not crowded.
arent alot of people moving to houston

Doesn't mean the houses are going to increase in price. It's one of the cheapest cities to live in the country.

For the same prices as Tribeca give me a place in Aspen or Malibu and I'll head to NYC,LA for some weekend city fixes..Both NYC,LA can't even come close to competing with the natural beauty of those towns.

Tribeca in Manhattan is not all that PRESTIGIOUS of neighborhoods. JEALOUS? Why would anyone be jealous of living right in the center of manhattan considering how HORRIBLE TRAFFIC IS and OVERPOPULATED not to mention how many RODENTS roam NYC streets and how many more are seen inside the aparments.

Have Fun moving there if that's what you wish but I don't think anyone is JEALOUS or WISHES THEY WERE AS LUCKY AS YOU

Let Us Know how it goes

You can't even rent a studio in Tribeca for only $2,000....more like around $3,000.

Tribeca's median prices:

Studio:$3,020
One bedroom:$4,303
Two bedroom: $6,818

Beverly Hills 90210 average income: $408,901

NO, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

If a person searches properly, then studios in Tribeca can be found for a little under 2,000

This website is really expensive and I found many apartments in Tribeca under the range you are talking about. Also, this is the first and only website that I searched

Do you live in Tribeca? You are trying to build it up to make it a more glamorous neighborhood than it really is

^^Yeah, I believe it, but those apartments are probably the size of a shoebox, lol. But when you come from NY, you're used to small spaces anyway. My apartment is small and I don't mind.

People in Tribeca have more important things to do than stare at mountains all day. There are actual things to do, unlike Aspen or Malibu. Tribeca is a year-round glamorous neighborhood, Aspen is only glamorous during certain months and Malibu is just boring.

Architecturally, Tribeca is more beautiful than Malibu or Aspen and if we all based our neighborhoods solely on "natural beauty" we wouldn't move to Aspen or Malibu (honestly, Malibu looks kind of ugly/dry and is beyond overrated to me), we would all live in the Dalmatian Coasts or the Italian or French Riviera.

I am a city boy and would much rather live in Tribeca than Aspen or Malibu.
