Nolita, the acronym for “North of Little Italy”, is a neighborhood that has been formed in the past decade or so and has evolved into one of the desired pockets of Downtown Manhattan, if not the entire city. Originally a neighborhood formed by immigrants, stepping directly off the boat in Ellis Island, the neighborhood remains true to it’s roots with it’s residences being an eclectic mix from all over the world. Housing options remain limited in this highly desired pocket, with a mix of tenement buildings, townhouses and turn of the century loft buildings.
Located in the heart of Downtown Manhattan, Nolita is bordered by Greenwich Village, Lower East Side, SoHo, Chinatown and Little Italy and offers incredibly easy access to any of these desired neighborhoods by either a quick walk, or it’s access to several different train lines such as: 6,B,D,F,M,N,R,J or Z train lines.
The neighborhood is filled with boutique shops along Mott, Mulberry and Elizabeth Streets, an incredible assortment of café’s and restaurants, nightlife and a slew of newly built hotels, such as “The Crosby Street Hotel”, “The Mondrian” and “The Nolitan”. Many “old school” restaurants remain such as “Lombardi’s”, “Parisi Bakery” and “Café Habana” and have been joined by several newcomers such as, “Torrisi Italian Specialties”, “Ruby’s”, “La Esquina”, just to name a few.
The constant flow of frenetic energy, incredible dining options, coupled with a real neighborhood feel, keep Nolita one of the most desirable locations in town.
