North Davidson Arts District
North Davidson Arts District Review
Located 2 mi north of Uptown, Charlotte bills NoDa as "SoHo's little sister." While this small, historic neighborhood is quite a bit sleepier than its New York City sibling, it's still undeniably cool. Creative energy flows through the reclaimed textile mill and little houses, cottages, and commercial spaces. Here you'll find both the kooky and traditional—artists, musicians, dancers, restaurateurs, and even knitters—sharing space.
