Combine vibrant with quaint and you have Nolita. Imagine outdoor lounging at cafes during the day and plenty of late-night watering holes along narrow, picturesque streets with chic boutiques and galleries. Nolita is less commercial than much of Manhattan, has cobblestone streets, and is known for its historic brick and cast iron buildings. The name Nolita means that it is north of the Little Italy district, and it’s a great place for people who like to poke in and out of shops or stop and sip the coffee.
