Noho is more low-key and somewhat quieter than its similarly abbreviated neighbor on the south side of Houston Street, but Noho has more in common with Soho than a catchy nickname. Like Soho, Noho is rich in historic architecture and high-ceilinged loft-style apartments, both in ambitious new construction luxury condominiums and high-end condo conversion projects. And yet there's more to Noho -- which is roughly bounded by Houston Street, the Bowery, Astor Place, and Broadway, also considered part of Greenwich Village -- than a nickname and some lofts.
Noho has a striking variety of structures, with neighboring marble, brick, cast-iron and terracotta facades lending each Noho block a unique and diverse look. Noho also manages to still remain a lively artistic and cultural neighborhood. Besides the expected boutiques, cool nightlife spots and the wide array of eateries, NoHo is also home to a range of museums, theaters, live music venues, and even a small opera company. Even the condominium listings of Noho seem to adhere to the neighborhood’s alternately artistic and understated aesthetic. The ultra-luxurious 40 Bond is one of Manhattan’s hottest new construction condominiums, and neighbor 25 Bond, a condo conversion in what was once a parking garage, gives the neighborhood a top-tier boutique condo listing. Sophisticated, diverse, and bursting with quintessentially downtown vitality, Noho is more than Soho north. It’s also one of downtown Manhattan's most appealing places to live.
