Etymology: A portmanteau word: NoLiTa = NOrth of LIttle ITaly.
Location: Downtown Manhattan. NoLiTa is a small neighborhood just north of Little Italy. NoLiTa's boundaries today are Houston Street to the North, Kenmare Street to the South, Broadway to the West and Bowery to the East.
Character: In many ways similar to Little Italy, from which it derived its name, but quieter, less touristy and more residential. NoLiTa only began being branded as a separate neighborhood in the 1990's: prior to that, Little Italy was considered be extending all the way up to Bleecker Street.
NoLiTa's central location, the quiet charm of its streets, the near absence of through-traffic (although its northern and eastern borders, Houston Street and Bowery respectively, are busy arteries) and a variety of small restaurants and boutiques on the ground floor level of the neighborhood's low-rise buildings constitute the neighborhood's biggest draws.
Apartments & Real Estate
NoLiTa consists mostly of 5-6 story walk-up buildings, both old (turn-of-the-century tenement-type) and new. There are no high-rises.
