Just north of Little Italy, New York City’s trendiest new neighborhood offers a close-knit community feel and a sophisticated retail landscape for residents looking for effortless charm and a chic vibe.
Once a part of Little Italy, Nolita came into its own after a gradual breakaway from the character and distinct culture of Little Italy. A community of cosmopolitan newcomers brought along a wave of new retail and hiked up rent prices. Merging old traditions with modern conveniences, the neighborhood is made up of well-maintained walk-ups and cozy tree-lined streets. While the rising costs of Nolita might scare off families looking for space to grow, young professionals and couples will find the unique amenities and enviable location well worth the price.
Nolita offers up-and-coming shops and restaurants in an environment far more peaceful than that of neighboring Little Italy and Chinatown. Sample cocktails and admire art at one of the areas many galleries, or enjoy a leisurely dinner at the hidden culinary gems lining the neighborhood’s streets. It is an intimate place, with neighbors frequently stopping to catch up with one another.
If you can afford to call Nolita home, you’ll be part of a tiny but hip community enjoying the perks of a growing neighborhood.
