In the 1960s and ’70s, artists colonized the former industrial wasteland in the triangle below Canal Street, squatting in its abandoned warehouses. These days, Tribeca’s six-figure lofts are occupied by the rich and famous; Robert De Niro, a founder of the Tribeca Film Center, Tribeca Film Festival and several local businesses, is the celebrity most closely associated with the neighborhood. Upscale retail and haute restaurants cater to the well-heeled locals, but there are some affordable spots in the mix, such as an outpost of excellent wine bar chainlet Terroir and the outstanding culture hub 92YTribeca. Tribeca—New York's gritty nightlfe frontier in the 1980s—continues the legacy of the Mudd Club and Area with one of the city's best clubs, Santos Party House.
