A charming little enclave sandwiched between Bowery and Broadway, NoHo has a distinctive style all its own, in spite of its proximity to both villages – East and West – as well as SoHo (NoHo being an abbreviation for North of Houston Street).
Its streets are notably wider than those of its neighboring areas, with a fascinating mix of the usual downtown density of shops and eateries, but a lack of tourist crowds. Its central location is convenient to NYU and Cooper Union, but throngs of students aren’t as prominent here as in, for instance, the East Village. For easy transit to the rest of the city, Astor Place and Union Square are nearby, and NoHo’s unexpected elegance belies its convenience.
Some of the city’s finest restaurants, bars, and shops are found on NoHo’s aesthetically unique streets, and real estate in this neighborhood is extremely desirable.
