Neighborhood Description

NoLita, which stands for North (No..) of Little Italy (..Lita), combines a bit of old New York and a healthy dose of the new city as well.

NoLIta is a Manhattan neighborhood located north of Little Italy, east of SoHo, west of the Lower East Side, and south of NoHo. A few remnants of the neighborhood’s Italian immigrant past remain—like Lombardi’s Pizza, or the Italian grandmothers that sit on the steps of their buildings and chat with neighbors as they walk by, or the Feast of San Gennaro, held in the neighborhood each year. But the past several decades have brought an influx of young professionals and boutique shops into the area, which prior to that was primarily known as the neighborhood of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, a church built in the early 1800s that remains a beautiful sight.

With a recent construction boom in the neighborhood, there are now significantly more NoLIta apartments to choose from, including the Avalon Properties building at Chrystie and Houston and the 284 Mott Street building. These buildings are full service, have good amenities, common roof decks (in some cases), but may lack character. A benefit of the increase in housing supply is that rents are below that of nearby SoHo. While it may not have the reputation of SoHo, NoLita has its share of pop culture relevance. The famous baptism scene in The Godfather was filmed at St. Patrick's Cathedral, while residents of the neighborhood have included David Bowie, John Mayer, and Martin Scorsese, who was born and raised in NoLita.

Nolita has a great array of bars and restaurants packed into a relatively small area. Café Habana is a Cuban style restaurant with a cool vibe and was the location for the music video for Lenny Kravitz’s Again. For great pizza you can go to Lombardi’s or to Pomodoro for a famed vodka slice. Café Colonia is a local favorite and serves Brazilian/ American food. For an evening cappuccino or some Sunday brunch, stop by Café Gitane. Lastly, for an afternoon or evening beer, Spring Lounge is always fun.

Most public transit in NoLIta is serviced by either the Spring Street subway (6) or the Bowery subway (J), located on the southeastern corner of NoLIta. Bus service is popular throughout the area, as well. The M21 runs along East Houston in the northern part of the neighborhood, while the M103 travels along Bowery. With its desirable Lower Manhattan location, getting to and from NoLIta is very easy.
