Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood so I separated them.
Nolita has a bit different vibe than Soho. It’s very cozy. Luckily there are still good looking people around, but there is more…swag about them. I love coming in here and just walk around these streets, it relaxes me.
I usually get off at the Broadway/Lafayette subway station (B, D, F, M, 6 trains) and walk towards Lafayette Street. I usually grab coffee at La Colombe coffee shop on Lafayette Street (next to the Supreme store, 274 Lafayette).Then I walk around Nolita streets – Elizabeth, Mulberry, Mott and Prince. They have this typical NY charm and I think it’s essential to come here when you’re visiting NY.
Here are my other favorite places:
Cafe Habana – 17 Prince Street
Rice to Riches – I love the design of that spot and I would occasionally buy its rice pudding, 37 Spring Street
McNally Jackson bookstore – one of my favorites bookstores in NY, 52 Prince Street
MoMA store – if you are looking for an original gift for someone, 81 Spring Street
T2 – a tea store with a huge variety of loose teas and tea accessories, 67 Prince Street
Le Labo – 233 Elizabeth Street (a favorite store of mine with expensive perfumes)
Little Cupcake Bakeshop – with delicious cupcakes, 30 Prince Street
Dyptique on 242 Mott Street (perfumes again)
Black Seed Bagels – bagel store, a bit too expensive, Elizabeth Street
Mc Nally Bookstore
