Tribeca Celebrities, Robert De Niro, Actors and Filmmakers, Gwyneth Paltrow, Meryl Streep

With its cobblestone streets, quirky artists’ lofts and industrial-chic architecture, Tribeca is a hot spot for filming movies and television scenes. This past spring, we did a round up of the musicians that call Tribeca home; now we’re taking a look at the flock of actors and filmmakers who have made the move to the ‘hood’s picturesque streets.

Tribeca’s most famous resident, Robert De Niro, is often credited with transforming the neighborhood into the vibrant place we know today by opening multiple restaurants, developing property, and most notably creating the world-famous Tribeca Film Festival. In addition to De Niro, we mapped out Tribeca’s celebrity residents who are famous onscreen and behind the scenes. Ranging from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “fuzzy nap zones” with river views to Lena Dunham’s artist loft from “Tiny Furniture,” it’s clear that celebrities feel at home in Tribeca.

But over the last two decades, some of the world’s most famous pop musicians have been gobbling up real estate on its cobblestone streets. From Katy Perry and Taylor Swift to Chris Martin and Justin Timberlake, the hit makers can’t get enough of Tribeca.

Para-Project, Van Alen Institute, Syracuse New York, Haffenden House

The Haffenden House by PARA-Project, a tranquil writers studio in Syracuse, New York, was designed as a place for two poets to find respite and inspiration. Located on a typical suburban street, the modern, white rectangular structure stands out against the more traditional homes to its left and right. The architect has stated that “The project finds itself within the suburban realm, referencing Gianni Pettena’s Ice House from 1972, as a blank spot within the repetitive image of ‘house.'”
