During the 1960's and '70s, abandoned, and inexpensive TriBeCa lofts became hot-spot residences for young artists and their families because of the seclusion of lower Manhattan and the vast living space. James Stratton, a TriBeCa resident since this period, wrote the 1977 nonfiction book entitled "Pioneering in the Urban Wilderness," detailing his experiences renovating lower Manhattan warehouses into residences.


Many people mistakenly attributed the name TriBeCa, the acronym for Triangle Below Canal, to the “triangular-shaped neighborhood”. However, the neighborhood resembles an irregular trapezoid. TriBeCa’s etymology is more site-specific.


In the early 1970s, a couple of years after artists in SoHo were able to legalize their live/work situation, artist and resident organizations in the area to the south, known then as Washington Market or simply the Lower West Side, sought to gain similar zoning status for their neighborhood. A group of Lispenard Street artist/residents living on the block directly south of Canal Street between Church Street and Broadway, joined the effort. Just as the members of the SoHo Artists Association coined "SoHo" after looking at a City Planning map which marked the area as So. Houston’ and shortened that to SoHo, these Lispenard Street residents likewise employed a City Planning map to describe their block. Cast-iron architecture in Greene Street SoHo is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan. ...


Since that block below Canal is wide on the Church Street side but narrows towards the Broadway end, it appears as a triangle on City maps. The Lispenard residents decided to name their group the Triangle Below Canal Block Association, and, as activists had done in SoHo, shortened the group’s name to the TriBeCa Block Association.


A reporter covering the zoning story for the New York Times came across the block association’s submission to City Planning and mistakenly assumed that the name TriBeCa referred to the entire neighborhood, not just one block. Once the paper began referring to the neighborhood as TriBeCa, it stuck. The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ...

The Tribeca's needle-nose front grille and buxom cabin represent the edgiest styling seen in an SUV since the Nissan Murano debuted three years ago.
The Tribeca is indeed festooned with creature features–some will say artifices–that Subaru's core customers may disdain, such as accent lighting in the doors and foot wells, two-zone air conditioning, a moonroof, and a seven-inch digital screen for radio, climate control, and other vehicle information.
And the Tribeca is equipped with all-wheel drive similar to that found on other Subarus, rather than full-blown four-wheel drive, the standard for true off-roaders.
