This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Tribeca by theblackwatch
In addition to the "loft family" (strollers everywhere) aspect of Tribeca, I guess it's also known for movies being filmed there and a bunch of celebrities with homes in the neighborhood (Gwyneth Paltrow, Jay-Z, etc.). A bunch of top-end restaurants that pride themselves on a "downtown" vibe, too.
Tribeca Citizen has a series of "then and now" pictures of the neighborhood that give a decent sense of what the streets look like and also how anyone who bought real estate in the neighborhood during the 1980s made an absolute killing (a few zip codes in Tribeca now up there as the priciest in the city). The streets up towards Canal (as opposed to down by the World Trade Center) look industrial and almost deserted from the outside, but the inside of most of the lofts in Tribeca are typically very impressive.
