Happy Festival Week! The Tribeca Film Festival just kicked off this week (through 4/29), and it's another very NY must-do event. The Festival came to life 11 years ago with the support of American Express to help revitalize the Tribeca neighborhood - and I think it has done a lot for lower Manhattan. If anything, it has made it a cooler place to be - so be cool and go!
