Live in Nolita / Little Italy
Parameters: Little Italy is bounded on the west by Tribeca and Soho, on the south by Chinatown, on the east by the Bowery and Lower East Side, and on the north by Nolita.
There was a time when Nolita was part of Little Italy and home to thousands of Italian immigrants. People lived in crowded tenements and had hard lives toiling away in factories brickyards and slaughterhouses. With the old Italian residents gone the area is now home to an influx of relatively young and wealthy residents.
Martin Scorsese is perhaps the most well-known celebrity to have called this area his home. First at 241 Elizabeth and then in a third-floor apartment at 253 Elizabeth. The Feast of San Gennaro was featured in Scorsese’s Godfather Part II and recreated on Elizabeth Street between Prince and Houston.
The Puck Building (a landmark) built in 1885 on the corner of Houston and Lafayette Streets and once home to Puck Magazine has been transformed into condos with one of the penthouses hitting the market with whopping $66 million price tag. But even the wealthy rent their spaces and if you have money to spare you can rent an apartment for a mere $150,000.00/month.
The other landmark is St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral at the intersection of Mulberry, Mott and Prince Streets. It was built in 1815 and rebuilt in 1868 after a fire nearly destroyed it.
Narrow picturesque streets with cafes that spill out into the sidewalks make Nolita feel like a photograph taken in France or Italy. The honking of a yellow cab and the trendy shops pull you back into the Nolita of today. Living here is wonderful. But remember the turnover rate is low – so if you find something, be ready to take it on the spot or lose it.
