NoHo has more in common with SoHo -- its similarly named neighbor on the south side of Houston Street -- than a catchy nickname. Like SoHo, NoHo is rich in historic architecture and high-ceilinged loft-style apartments in converted warehouses. And yet there's more to NoHo -- which is roughly bounded by Houston Street, the Bowery, Astor Place, and Broadway -- than a nickname and some lofts. And yes, that includes luxury apartments for rent.
NoHo has a striking variety in structures, with neighboring marble, brick, terra cotta facades, and cast iron creating numerous lovely and appealingly diverse blocks. Perhaps even more so than SoHo, which has lost most of its artistic edge amid a rising tide of poshness, NoHo remains a lively artistic and cultural neighborhood. Besides the expected boutiques, cool nightlife spots and a wide array of eateries, NoHo is also home to a wide range of museums, theaters, live music venues, and even a small opera company. Understated, sophisticated, diverse, and bursting with quintessentially downtown vitality, NoHo is one of downtown Manhattan's most appealing places to live.
