North Moore Street is a moderately trafficked street in Tribeca, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It runs roughly east-west between West Broadway and West Street; automotive traffic is westbound only. On street signs and maps, the street was usually written as "N. Moore Street". Despite persistent stories that it was named for Nathaniel Moore, the street is named North Moore Street for Benjamin Moore (1748-1816), the second bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the father of Clement Clarke Moore. North Moore Street should not be confused with the older Moore Street, a short street located near the Battery at the southern tip of Manhattan. There is no "South Moore Street".
