The majestic streets of NoHo epitomize a bygone era of New York architecture, evidenced in gorgeous facades of cast-iron, marble, limestone, brick, and terracotta. A stroll through this landmarked neighborhood is a both a walk back in time and a cross-section of all that is contemporary in New York. Featuring a cornucopia of boutiques, fine dining, and of-the-moment architectural masterpieces, NoHo offers the very best of classic and present-day chic.


Landscape

Bordered by Houston Street to the south, Astor Place to the north, Broadway to the west, and Bowery to the East, the valuable sliver of land that is NoHo sits right at the center of downtown Manhattan. Comprised largely of pre-war loft apartments, much of NoHo is landmarked and largely unalterable, solidifying it as one of the most valuable and desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan.


History

NoHo came into existence as a destination in the 1820s, when Lafayette Street was opened and quickly became one of the most fashionable streets in the city. Evidence of its grand history can be found in the landmarked Colonnade Row, a series of Greek Revival buildings on Lafayette just below Astor Place, dating from 1833. By the 1850s, the area became an epicenter for retail and wholesale dry goods, and renowned architects were contracted to design ornate store and loft buildings, many of which still exist today among the 125 landmarked buildings in the NoHo Historic District. In the 2000s, additional real estate development and starchitect design resulted in some of the most dazzling architectural projects in the city, including 40 Bond Street, 25 Bond Street, and 445 Lafayette Street.
