NoHo, named for it’s location just ‘NOrth of HOuston’, is a small historically commercial district wedged between the Bowery and Broadway. Following its development through the turn of the 20th-century, the neighborhood established itself as a major merchant hub for the sale of dry goods. Known at the time as the ‘Warehouse District’, NoHo later experienced an influx of artists and loftdwellers due to the availablity of large industrial spaces.
Despite development in the 1970s and 1980s, the neighborhood has preserved its distinct 19th-century architecture. Today, NoHo is still a bustling commercial hub especially along Broadway and Lafayette, featuring many reknowned boutiques as well as the distinctive alternative Angelica Film Center.
