Tribeca is known for big-bucks lofts, celebrity residents and fancy food. The Taste of Tribeca, started in 1994, is a great way to pig out on glamorous grub from eateries like Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Grill, Bouley, Landmarc, City Hall and many others. The family-friendly event benefits the neighborhood’s public elementary schools P.S. 234 and P.S. 150, and thus features a play-all-day Kids Zone. And for the parents: a New York State wine tasting.
Hudson Street, 11:30am-3pm, tickets from $45.
