"Meh. I'm not a fan."

Walker Street turns into Walker right at Tribeca Park. It was named for Benjamin Walker, a Revolutionary War Hero that was, apparently, a poofter that was having an affair with a big General. I find that incredibly amusing for some reason. The street, as it becomes Walker, starts off strong with The Tribeca Grand. That Hotel is one of the most famous in Manhattan and they are notorious for housing pretty fancy parties. It really is beautiful but seemingly out of place.
A large majority of this diminuitive street is part of Chinatown and Walker is dangerously close to that section of Canal street where all of the designer knock offs are sold (Walker, himself, would have been proud). But, the rest of us are not so happy with this area. It's crowded and loud and filthy. I avoid this part of town at pretty much all costs.
You can find a beautiful, new apartment on Walker. Much like the rest of Tribeca, there are a lot of fantastic, new lofts that are ridiculously expensive and lush. But, the price tag seems extreme to me, considering you are practically on Canal street and Tribeca always seems like the middle of nowhere to me. There are a few bars up Walker as it turns into Beach, but it's pretty bare bones in this part of town in the way of food and fun. You'll have a really nice apartment here, but you'll have to take a cab to brunch, lunch, dinner, etc . . unless you eat at Bubby's three times a day.
  • Pretty lofts
  • Crowded
  • Hard to get a cab

"Surprisingly, A Fun Place"

This is one of the streets in the city that boasts some of its hidden, but fantastic fun. It’s a great street to live on because of its proximity to SoHo and Chinatown and because of the plethora of night spots around. One in particular is M1-5 Lounge, which is a great place to have a party. There are some great food options here, and it is one of those streets that it is hard to be bored on. There is also a really great store that sells only Western and “Cowboy” attire, which is definitely worth a look, even if it is a little pricy. It is conveniently close to the Canal Street stops.

"A Great Street"

This street is one of my favorites in the city. Firstly, go to M1-5 Lounge. It's a great party place and there's a lot going on. It's a really fun place to live, with several upscale lofts and condos available. You're also in the heart of the SoHo/Chinatown area, and you'll find so much in the way of fun and food in this neighborhood you'll be hard pressed to be bored. Also, it's extremely convenient with the metro 2 blocks away on Canal Street, keeping you very well connected with the rest of the city. All in all, a perfect street!
