Nolita

Nolita (29)

The north of the historic district of Little Italy, hence its name No-Lita, has been rediscovered by New Yorkers and transformed into one of the most stylish areas, as has happened with SoHo some years ago.

Formerly, only its neighbours and almost nobody else hung around this area, which is located between Houston Street and Kenmare Street, since there were barely any Italian shops and few small trattorias. However, since the mid-1990s yuppies started coming here and, in addition to rocketing prices per square metre, the neighbourhood is currently filled with boutiques, fine signature restaurants and glamorous cafes. The truth is that touring Elizabeth, Mott and Mulberry streets can be an ideal way to spend an afternoon shopping, especially for accessories, indulging in a gastronomic treat and ending up taking a drink on a lovely terrace.

In addition to its fashionable shops, visiting Old Saint Patrick's Cathedral is also a must, which opened in 1815 and was rebuilt in 1866 after a fire, with a Georgian interior style that surprises everyone.

And to name a last detail of this district, we suggest you go and admire the Puck Building, which is located between Houston, Lafayette, Mulberry and Jersey Street. Designed by Albert and Herman Wagner in 1885 and expanded in 1893, the building housed the editorial office of the magazine, Puck Magazine, which is no longer existing, and is currently mainly known for its two gilded carvings of Puck, the character of A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare.
