Visited the Nolita neighborhood in Manhattan for my first time this past weekend and was so pleasantly surprised! There are tons of great shops on Elizabeth street and surrounding area. Some of my favorites included United By Blue, Roots, Wolverine, and Fjallraven (right around the corner). Whether you're looking for a new beanie, jacket, or boots, some of the greatest... More

Tree-lined street, trendy shops, art galleries, brilliant cafes... almost a quaint little village (10 blocks) inside the bustling metropolis.

NoLiTa is the best of what SoHo WAS: a small intimate neighborhood with lots of unique and excellent shops and restaurants. It's characterized by narrow streets, small boutiques, and superb restaurants.

Nolita isn't a very large area of New York but it fits a lot of good things in to look at if you wander around. Nothing big ticket - although Old St Patrick's Cathedral is definitely worth a visit (and also if you are a movie buff you will remember it from Mean Streets). The Cafe Gitane which overlooks its...

This is my favorite Manhattan neighborhood. It's classic ... old and quaint ... but very hip at the same time. Trendy types should shop in Soho and eat expensively. This is more about neighborhood folk and cool bars and small bistros. It's a beauty! Very safe...great strolling for a family that likes to poke in and out of shops. Little... More

A truly quaint, quiet, stylish petite area in which to wander and get lost. Try the scents of Le Labo, grab a dessert at The Little Cupcake Bakeshop, pray in the Old St Patrick's Cathedral + smell the candles and fragnances at Diptyque. Oh! Maybe you'll get a glimpse of Moby as he returns home to his Mott Street Apartment... More

Not much to do here apart from visit a few of the fashion boutiques and visit Old Saint Patricks Cathedral. Just seems a reason to name a few streets as a separate neighbourhood.

The best thing in Nolita, in my opinion, is Old St. Patrick's Cathedral. I often find myself walking through this neighborhood, which is not much bigger than a postage stamp, to get from Greenwich Village to Chinatown. Its location is probably the greatest thing it has going for it. Since real estate agents gave it the name Nolita in the... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
