NoHo, short for North of Houston Street, has an artsy sensibility that extends back many decades. Previously home to iconoclasts like Basquiat and Warhol, NoHo can also lay claim to being the Birthplace of Punk, where the now-defunct CBGB & OMFUG rock club was located. Proximity to other downtown neighborhoods like SoHo, Lower East Side, Nolita, Little Italy, and East Village make it a convenient locale for after hours recreation.
Today, NoHo is still one of New York City’s funkiest neighorhoods, with a deep roster of live music, theater, trendy bars, record stores, and popular bistros to keep the locals busy. Its buildings also display a heady mix of downtown chic, gritty pragmatism, and historic grandeur; not unlike its SoHo sibling (except with more reasonable rents). Commercial tenants can expect office space for rent in the vicinity of $66/sqft.
