The desolate area bounded by Canal Street to the north, the Hudson River to the west, Broadway to the east and Murray Street to the south became known as TriBeCa in the 1970s as artists priced out of Soho began to colonize the neighborhood’s largely derelict warehouses and factory buildings from its industrial past. Since then, the neighborhood’s residential conversion is complete, and today, TriBeCa is one of the City’s most sought-after spots for artists, professionals and families in search of large loft-style living in an architecturally-distinct setting. The neighborhood is home to many of the City’s top restaurants, bars and boutiques, as well as exclusive (and expensive) addresses.
The Odeon, the restaurant that launched the career of prolific restaurateur Keith McNally, and gained infamy as the Downtown yuppie “Bolivian marching powder” hot spot in the Jay McInerney classic, Bright Lights Big City, is still there!
