"Strange combination of great schools and parks with a decidely non-residential vibe."

The loft, hangout vibe of SoHo didn't translate to TriBeCa where the nightlife and restaurants are trying so hard to emulate. The neighborhood rolls up the streets surprisingly early for NY, probably a holdover from keeping bankers hours.

The schools are really great, with outrageously wealthy PTA members adding perks to the kitty. (eg: The Alvin Ailey dance company comes to the elementary school to teach a dance class, a macbook for every student....)

This is still a neighborhood in flux. The heavy construction in the giant hole down the block is incredibly invasive. Because it is still trying to be the center of the universe, much of the truck traffic is relegated to night hours. The same goes for street construction- the jackhammers start at 9pm and go through the morning.

Overall, you cannot beat the square footage in some of the apartments, but if you are trying to keep up with the Joneses, bring your credit.
