NoHo has an average violent crime rate and a below average property crime rate for New York City.

  what's this neighborhood like?

NoHo continues New York's tradition of renaming newly hip neighborhoods after their relation to streets; in this case, it's a tiny neighborhood 'North of Houston Street'. Encompassing about ten small city blocks in lower Manhattan,  NoHo was once an industrial area but now is a highly desirable residential neighborhood. The beautiful buildings here show off about 200 years of different architecture, with modern residences going up next to renovated industrial lofts.

There is plenty of culture packed into this small area. The Angelika Film Center has been playing independent fare to cinephiles since 1989. Or you can catch off-Broadway shows at the historic Astor Theater, built in 1831, which was the original venue for the Blue Man Group's performances. Across the street, the Public Theater occupies the site of the former Astor Library, built in 1854. And the Bowery Poetry Club features readings, open mic nights, and poetry slams.

The neighborhood has plenty of great restaurants and bars as well and tends to be more subdued than the East Village crowd next door.

NoHo also features more unique shopping than its similarly geographic named sister to the south. The chain stores that have invaded SoHo aren't as prominent here, so you're more likely to stumble across one-of-a-kind boutiques.

NoHo attracts a diverse group of people, ranging from artists to Wall Street types. This is a great location for anyone working in Midtown or the Financial district since it sits in the middle of both and has a number of subway lines close by.

NoHo is bordered on the north by Gramercy Park, on the east by the East Village, on the south by Little Italy, and on the west by Greenwich Village.
