Noho, or North of Houston Street, is a small enclave between Greenwich Village and the East Village (bounded by Astor Place, Houston Street, Broadway and 3rd Avenue). It is largely defined by its architecture of gorgeous loft buildings, the esteemed (and free!) Cooper Union, high-end boutiques, and upscale restaurants. Subway access is convenient, and neighborhood cafes and boutiques abound, making Noho a very popular place to live in Manhattan.
Here you will find converted lofts and walk-ups, most of which are protected by the neighborhood’s historic district designation, and a few new luxury developments, all of which are generally pricey.
Noho used to be called the Warehouse district; Jean-Michel Basquiat lived and worked out of 57 Great Jones Street for the last 6 years of his life.
