N Moore St.
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.”
Bubby's and Younghee Salon

Bubby’s has been a TriBeCa institution since 1990. Whether I’m there during the week for a breakfast meeting or having a family dinner with the kids, once you sit on the old wooden benches and dig into one of their famous pies, you can’t help but think you’re in a small town.”

“Younghee, the talented owner of Younghee Salon, always accommodates my last-minute decisions to get a haircut. Younghee is a world-class salon, but the vibe is so friendly and easy that I often have memories of the joint where my dad used to take me for haircuts.”

Tribeca Film Festival
Cofounded by actor Robert De Niro, the neighborhood’s annual Tribeca Film Festival takes place in the spring, with star-studded premieres, panel discussions and roundtables with movieland notables.
Hook and Ladder Company No. 8
“This historical street is book-ended by Hook and Ladder Company No. 8, the firehouse made famous in Ghostbusters, and the eagerly anticipated reconstruction of Pier 25,” says Burns. The pier will include a miniature golf course, beach volleyball courts, a playground and a town dock. 14 N. Moore St.
Locanda Verde
"You’d think The Greenwich Hotel has been here 100 years, but it’s just two years old—and it’s become the neighborhood’s newest attraction," Burns says. The hotel features painstaking historical details, "from the spa to my new favorite restaurant, Locanda Verde. The wooden tables, cozy banquettes and wine-and book-shelved walls at Locanda Verde offer the perfect atmosphere to match the causal Italian cuisine. Be sure to order the lamb meatball sliders and the sheep’s-milk ricotta." 
Playing Mantis
Playing Mantis has “an incredible selection of handmade toys and games from around the world,” Burns says. 32 N. Moore St.
Walker's
“As you walk down the cobblestoned street, passing the buildings from the 1880s that have been converted into lofts, you’ll pass my favorite watering hole, Walker’s. It’s the perfect place for a great burger, pint of Guinness and a good seat at the bar to watch a Mets game.” 16 N. Moore St.

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.
