NoLIta

Many locals would say that the spirit of old SoHo is somewhat alive in NoLIta, a charming neighborhood with an artistic spirit, independently run boutiques and restaurants, and a local vibe. The streets here are less frantic and crowded than either SoHo or Chinatown, and each block could provide hours of fun shopping in small shops, nursing a cappuccino at a sidewalk café, or lingering over a meal surrounded by creative New Yorkers. This is downtown, so the prices aren't cheap, but the quality is high and the experience unique.
