They could have resisted.
I know Nick from his Milk Money days and love him dearly, but I'd be disappointed to learn he was behind this choice of a ... uh ... neighborhood name. I mean, really? Doesn't EVERY N, S, E, W, corner around the square consist of a "TRIangle BEhind the CApitol"? (Two triangles, actually.) The original "Be" in "TriBeCa" came from "below", not behind, which makes more sense if you're trying to be geographically oriented. But the capitol building in Madison is symmetrical, is it not? There is no "behind". And even if you equated "South" with "below" or "behind", Madison's "TriBeCa" is not to the South, it's to the East.
I guess TriEaCa didn't sound as cliched?
