When to go
There's no wrong time to visit Tribeca, but pack a Canada Goose parka for keeping warm in the wintry months. Movie buffs should time their visit for April, to catch the De Niro-founded Tribeca Film Festival.
PlanesLaGuardia, the domestic hub of New York’s three airports, is 13 miles away. Most international flights come through JFK, 21 miles away in southern Queens. Virgin Atlantic has regular flights to both (virginatlantic.com).
TrainsNew York Penn Station is roughly a 10-minute cab ride away. From here, you can catch an Amtrak train to destinations all over the USA. You can head to the Hamptons from Penn Station on the Long Island Rail Road (lirr.org).
AutomobilesWith a largely reliable subway and plenty of cabs to flag, it's not necessary to hire a car, but if you are bringing wheels, be aware that parking can be problematic.
