Old Tribeca Pt. 1

Before DeNiro's film offices, before Wall Street's uber rich arrived, and even before Dan Akroyd sold the four story tenement he purchased with John Belushi, Tribeca was an industrial neighborhood of warehouses and factories. It was largely leveled to build the Twin Towers in the 70s. But remnants of Tribeca's old soul remains, like this vacant storefront on  Canal (built in 1826 by John G. Rohr, a merchant tailor, who lived with his family in this building between 1830 and 1853.) These scant reminders of yesteryear are surrounded by freshly renovated buildings using their former blue collar glory as a selling point to the well heeled...such as the soap factory apartments nearby.. 
or this sign for a spice company on Watts. 
the Von Kraus warehouse...
and this lovely hand guiding you toward the entrance of a currently closed ground floor storefront...

Some lovely old buildings and great photos. Nice bit of history about the area as well.

James said...

Thanks for showing the stuff that might get over looked.

Adam said...

The first photo looks curiously like a row of old English telephone boxes.

Great pictures of an unseen side of the city.

Jean Spitzer said...

The juxtaposition of buildings in the third photo is particularly interesting. Great stuff.

Another great collection but I like the pointing hand best of all.

Jarart said...

Great stuff! I like the arches over the doors and windows.

Jacob said...

I really like that first shot...great composition and color...hopefully the place will be put to good use eventually...

Lovin' the arch above each doorway. They just don't make them like this anymore.
