SoHo & NoLIta

SoHo, ovvero South of Houston Street comprende il trapezio tra Houston Street, 6ht Avenue, Canal Street e Crosby Street.

NoLIta, North of Little Italy, si trova invece tra Lafayette e Bowery e tra Houston Street & Broome Street.

Adoro particolarmente queste due aree di Manhattan per via dei bellissimi edifici  (cast iron buildings) e dei dettagli artistici che vi si trovano, murales, venditori di strada, locali piccolissimi e carinissimi come Jack’s Wife Freda o il pop up di Oldfellows Icecream. E pensare che negli anni 80′ erano zone non raccomandabili, come si vede in tantissimi film, specialmente di Woody (Allen).

Gentrificate da artisti e designers prima, come spesso succede nella aree di Manhattan in recupero – vedi Williamsburg e Greenpoint, e ora Bushwick, NoLIta e SoHo sono da anni ormai quartieri di lusso con negozi come Chanel, Dior, Prada & co.

L’esperienza migliore di questi quartieri si ha pero’ da dentro i palazzi stessi. Sono andata ad un appuntamento proprio in uno di questi splendidi palazzi in cast iron – ghisa ed ho fatto in video proprio per mostrarvi cosa intendo. E’ davvero uno spettacolo!

Enjoy ragazzi!

SoHo, the acronym for South of Houston Street, is the trapezoidal area between Houston Street & 6ht Avenue and between Canal Street and Crosby Street.

NoLIta, North of Little Italy is located between Lafayette and the Bowery and between Houston Street & Broome Street.

I particularly adore these two areas in Manhattan thanks to their wonderful cast iron buildings as well as the crafty details spread here and there: murals, street vendors, small restaurants like Jack’s Wife Freeda or the ice cream pop up store Oldfellows Icecream. Impossible to think nowadays that it used to be a not-so-recommendable area during the 80’s and 90’s as often seen in many movies, especially Woody’s (Allen).

Gentrified by artists and designers first, is it often happens in the areas in Manhattan undergoing a renewal -Williamsburg and Greenpoint are great examples, as well as Bushwick which is currently happening, NoLIta and SoHo have been the place to be for years now, with stores such as Chanel, Dior, Prada & co.

One gets the best experience out of these neighborhoods from inside the buildings. I went to a meeting yesterday in one of these wonderful cast iron buildings and I took a video to show you what I meant. It’s a real gem.

Enjoy guys!
