Description
In the same manner as NoHo, SoHo and Tribeca, Nolita derives its name from its particular location within the city. One can make an educated guess at what the name means just by looking at it: Nolita = North of Little Italy. This neighborhood used to be included with Little Italy but as many of its Italian residents moved elsewhere, it slowly began to change and took on its own distinctive life and its own unique name.

Some proponents of the area have begun to label Nolita the next SoHo due to the fact that many of the small businesses who can’t afford the rent in SoHo have begun to move into to Nolita where the rent is much more affordable. You’ll find that there are many Mom and Pop operations in the neighborhood, too. Most of them have been around for generations and have seen their share of ups and downs but have stayed the course and remained afloat to become staples in the area. Among those particular establishments, you’ll find some of the very best bakeries, delis, restaurants and cafes in the city. A lot of the newest residents to the area are artsy types, actors, authors, artists and models and even kids from wealthy families all of whom make up a very SoHo type crowd.

Apartments in the Nolita neighborhood are generally small but very affordable, with a studio-type starting at about $1,300 a month. That’s the drawback of the area; what you get yourself in location, you pay for in lack of space. For example, you might even find that the apartment you’re going to look at doesn’t have a bathroom inside; you’ll have to share with other residents on the floor. Yep, that kind of thing isn’t a myth, it’s a reality in some Nolita buildings. Believe it or not, some of the most sought after apartments in the neighborhood don’t have bathrooms…

If you’re a single professional and you want to be removed from the typical family scene, this is probably a neighborhood that you’ll want to consider. One of the best things about Nolita is the fact that there are no less than four or five restaurants or places to eat at on each block. There are plenty of places to go and meet people, too. On the whole, Nolita is one of those neighborhoods that typical New Yorkers love but mostly forget about when looking for a new place to live meaning that there are more often than not a good number of available apartments for rent.
