NoLIta (for North of Little Italy) might retain many of the same features as nearby neighborhoods SoHo and Little Italy, but has a distinctly charming vibe all its own. The area’s cozy cafés, stylish boutiques and burgeoning bar scene make it a destination. Visit to browse the wares of independent designers and sit streetside at acclaimed restaurants and lounges. On a warm, bright day, few Manhattan neighborhoods offer better people-watching.
