The triangle below Canal Street, TriBeCa for short, is a neighborhood that has been recycled from a manufacturing and warehouse district into a
community of art galleries and some of the best restaurants in town.
Just to the west of the triangle is the Woolworth Building, St. Paul's Chapel, City Hall,
and the imposing Municipal Building behind it, where you go to get married "at City Hall." On Chambers Street, the Surrogate's Court is
modeled on the Paris Opera, and around the corner is Foley Square, dominated by the United States Courthouse and the New York County Courthouse.
If there is any joy connected with jury duty, it is having lunch nearby in Chinatown, the largest Asian community in North America,
where there are hundreds of restaurants ranging from dim sum parlors to places where you can enjoy a banquet at any time of the day or night.
There are also exotic shops and food stalls to explore.
Some of the best restaurants in town can be found in Tribeca
