Nolita or North Of Little Italy is a small, trendy neighborhood in New York City. In contrast to the busy life of NYC, Nolita is a more relaxed town. But, relaxed doesn't mean modest. NoLita has a little bit of Soho (South Houston) spillover and a lot of personality. There are tons of restaurants, bars, designer boutiques and cozy bookstores to entertain anyone. To give you some perspective, Nolita is east of Soho, west of the Bowery, north of Little Italy and south of Houston Street. The lifestyle in Nolita is a mix of fashion and sophistication and gives out an alluring charm of its own. The sweet essence of this friendly town made it the subject of Vanessa Carlton's famous song, "Nolita Fairytale."
This town is picturesque with colorful buildings, cathedrals, sidewalk cafes, bookstores and a lot of fashion stores. This town is almost like a movie setting. You can literally shop till you drop here followed by a warm cup of Espresso at a beautiful little cafe. This is arguably my favorite area of Manhattan, although it’s really a toss up between here and the LES (Lower East Side). I guess it depends on the day or my mood.
A complete tour in Nolita includes some of the must do's along with some of the little pleasures that aren't very popular. Nolita is very fashionable neighborhood, so a visit to some of its vintage and trendy boutiques can't be escaped. Along with that, this little town has a lot to offer in terms of small cafes and bars (that serve great wine). A novelty book store that provides books on travel as well as other subjects that will make you never want to leave, and finally two beautiful streets that will take you on a NoLITA journey of its own.
There are so many amazingly fascinating neighborhoods in New York and each deserves a little praise once in a while. This tour is all about Nolita. This trip is an amalgamation of all the things and places. Since visiting all won't be possible in a single day, I will periodically select places we will visit.
