Though tiny in stature, NoHo draws in an eclectic group of residents with its overall chic vibe. People enjoy tranquility in this upscale neighborhood somewhat removed from the bustle of touristy SoHo.
Its luxury marketplace and prime location make it a pricey yet desirable place to live. Those willing to shell out for its proximity to lively SoHo and the East Village enjoy life in this small central hub. Architecture enthusiasts will find the historic charm of the neighborhood’s loft apartments particularly alluring. Not as well defined as its neighbors, NoHo’s daily traffic tends to come from people passing through to get to nearby destinations.
While considered more of a place to walk through than a place to wander through, those who take the time to explore NoHo’s retail and cultural scene won’t be disappointed. Upscale cafes and restaurants serve up a delicious and trendy fare. Small boutiques on Bleecker Street and spacious galleries in the NoHo Arts District make for an enjoyable afternoon. Mixed in with these unique offerings are notable chain stores, drawing crowds from nearby neighborhoods.
NoHo boasts a handful of New York City landmarks passersby won’t want to miss. Take in the beautiful architecture of Grace Church. Head to Lafayette St and check out the talent at Astor Place and nearby Joseph Papp Public Theater. Step into the past with a glimpse into mid-nineteenth century living at the Merchant’s House Museum.
The ultimate foil to its busy neighbors, peaceful NoHo brings together tidy convenience and city charm.
