Here's a good rant from the StreetEasy message boards: "Given how expensive it is, you should expect tribeca to be a really nice neighborhood. But the place is currently a mess. Half the area is a construction warzone, with scaffolding everywhere, it's unbelievably dirty, old and outdated buildings, lot of cheap lowclass stores, etc. The real estate there is seriously overpriced and will crash this year or next. It's just not a pleasant place to live in." [StreetEasy]
