Actor/producer/writer/director Edward Burns lives in Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood with his wife, Christy Turlington Burns, and their two children, Grace and Finn. His favorite street is the nabe’s N. Moore Street (or North Moore Street, often mistakenly referred to as Nathaniel Moore Street). Says Burns, “N. Moore is undoubtedly my favorite street for so many reasons. It evokes strong suggestions of TriBeCa’s nostalgic past, but also embraces the constant shifting and adjusting that makes New York the greatest city in the world.” Burns’ film Nice Guy Johnny has been accepted into this month’s Tribeca Film Festival, his fifth film to show at the prestigious 12-day-long event.
TriBeCa, an acronym for “Triangle below Canal Street,” stretches from SoHo at the north to the Financial District at the south. Packed with restaurants, shops and new hotels, the neighborhood can easily be tackled on foot.
