It seems that New York City has more cultural activities within reach than almost any city in the world, but few of New York’s art shows are as unexpectedly moving as Number one on our list.

Tribeca Moving Tips

1. The Dream House at the MELA Foundation.

After ringing the buzzer—as if for an exclusive apartment function—visitors walk up three flights of steps where a Dream House employee greets guests, requests that they take off their shoes, suggests a $9 donation, and invites them to enter. Inside is a hallway illuminated at both ends with a deep pink glow. A neon sign with the words “Dream House” written four times, each moving in a different direction, hangs on the ceiling above this entryway. A sound with the rhythm of a breath and the hums of a gong and didjeridoo flow throughout this otherworldly space at the Dream House at the MELA Foundation. (275 Church St, New York, NY 10013)

2. Brandy Library

is the ideal bar and lounge to head to after a long, tiresome workday to spend a well-deserved evening of wining and dining, with a wide array of specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from which to choose. From malai tikka, spicy tuna rolls, crème brûlée, guacamole-filled puffs, filet mignon and éclairs au dulce de leche to brandies, whiskies, and rums, Brandy Library serves to quench your thirst and satiate your hunger with only the best drinks and dishes in the city. Brandy Library also boasts its own Spirit Sommeliers who work behind the counter and help diners choose the perfect beverage to delight their taste buds while explaining the history and craftsmanship behind the flavors of the drink. True to its name, this bar and lounge also houses an extensive library of books, which broach on all topics related to your favorite wine and spirits.

3. MmuseumM

This museum is dedicated to “Object Journalism” and tells the tale of modern society about people through objects. It’s a uniquely curated and very interesting. And yes, it’s located in an alley. (4 Cortlandt Alley, New York, NY 10013)

4. The Mysterious Bookshop

58 Warren Street is home to probably the most unusual bookstore in Manhattan. The Mysterious Bookshop mainly sells crime books, thriller and horror stories. They specialize in signed first editions, limited editions, and rare crime novels. This special spot is known for its crime clubs, which are a means of giving readers and collectors access to signed first editions from the best authors working in the genre. With seven clubs to choose from, there’s something for every crime-and-mystery related taste. Their selections are of the highest quality, many of them going on to win Edgar, Pulitzer, PEN, and Booker prizes.

5. People watching and sightseeing.

Tribeca is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in all of Manhattan. Therefore, you’ll often find celebrities tooling about because so many own property in this area. Robert De Niro even founded one of the most popular restaurants in Manhattan here, Tribeca Grill. The area has a lot of history as well. Just take in the old industrial buildings and cobblestone streets. There are many sweet little shops to discover and you are more likely than not to run into a live photo shoot happening on any given side street.

    I completed a move last month with Alpha Movers, and was super pleased with their service. I've moved a lot in the past 6-7 years, and have used a … More handful of different moving companies, and this was for sure the easiest / smoothest move of all of them. The crew showed up and finished right on time, and were very professional and careful with my things (perhaps even more so than I would've been myself!). Their office staff was also very professional and responsive. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but in any case, I would absolutely use Alpha Movers again.

    I had a great experience with Alpha Moving & Storage!
    When I initially contacted, Marc was responsive and helped get an on-site estimate set up. Andrew
    … More came out and took inventory of all my moving items to provide an estimate, so there would be no hidden costs. He was professional, thorough and gave great peace of mind.
    Day of the move, the movers showed up on time and ready to go. They were professional and very efficient taking stock of everything and getting the move underway. The entire 1 bedroom apartment was moved out and moved in within 3.5 hours door-to-door, even with the rainy conditions.
    The four movers worked super efficiently together and had a great system in place. They were professional and detailed making sure everything was placed in the desired location in the new space. Having the estimate done in advance was also very helpful as the only difference in price was to account for tax. It was nice to have no big surprises with moving costs and keep within budget.
    Alpha was recommended to me by my realtor and I would also highly recommend using them for your next move!

    Alpha Moving did a wonderful job helping us move into our new apartment! They quickly got multiple large pieces of furniture out of a suburban house and … More into a 4 story walk-up apartment in the city. The movers themselves were very gracious and went out of their way to help us set the furniture up and make sure everything fit into our space. Their prices and quality were unbeatable and they were very timely, communicative and prompt the day of. I would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future!
