First, however, here’s a Coming Up roundup, with info on a Tribeca art show, Bill Murray, and Bebel Gilberto.
I bet you’re pronouncing at least one Tribeca business’s name incorrectly. (I was.)
A WALK IN THE PARK
Connie Fishman, then-president of the Hudson River Park Trust, and landscape architect Signe Nielsen took me on a tour of the Tribeca section of the Hudson River Park.

WHAT RHYMES WITH TRIBECA?
I listened to 21 songs with “Tribeca” in the title so that you don’t have to.
Now available from New York Kayak Co., stand-up paddleboarding (a.k.a. SUP) is like windsurfing without the sail—you stand on a board and propel yourself with a paddle. Or not, as I learned the wet way.
A PIECE OF TRIBECA®
Do products and businesses called Tribeca have anything in common? And would anyone who lives in the neighborhood have anything to do with any of them? (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3)
WRITING ON THE WALL
Over a one-month period, photographer Asha Agnish walked every block of Tribeca. Her quest? To document the old signs left over from the neighborhood’s industrial past. (Part 1 and Part 2)
INSIDE PIER A
The Battery Park City Authority invited the local press to check out Pier A, the old building-on-a-pier just west of Battery Park. It was magical visit: I’m sure it’ll be beautiful when completed, but the romantic in me loved looking at the layers of history. (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3)
GIVING IT A WHIRL
I once watched whirling dervishes at Carnegie Hall, and found them entrancing—so when I saw a flyer about a “whirling workshop,” I knew I had to try it. The idea of doing it myself seemed childlike in the best possible way, and very liberating.
INSIDE THE STUDIO OF WILLIAM IVEY LONG
I paid a social call to Broadway’s leading costume designer, who moved his atelier to Walker Street just over a year ago.
GAGA GOES TRIBECA
Remember when Lady Gaga popped by Duane Park restaurant to hang out and sing a little Gershwin?
