Trends and Theatres
Noho, which stands for “North of Houston Street,” is a primarily residential neighborhood, but it also has plenty of cultural institutions to visit. The art movement of the 1970s really brought this area to life. It was declared a New York Landmark in 1999 and the new millennium saw rapid gentrification for both Noho and Soho. Many of the former’s 125 buildings were constructed in the Greek Revival style.
Historically, wealthy New Yorkers built mansions in the area. Astor built the Astor Library in the eastern portion of the neighborhood as a donation to the city. Alexander Jackson Davis designed beautiful houses called LaGrange Terrace (now Colonnade Row) for speculative builder Seth Geer. These residences once housed notable names such as Charles Dickens and Washington Irving. U.S. President John Tyler was apparently married in these houses, too.
The Merchant’s House Museum is a National Historic Landmark in the NoHo District. It is an individual historic building located just outside the eastern boundary of the Historic District. Both the inside and outside of this 1832 house have been restored to the mid-19th century style. Merchant Seabury Tredwell and his family lived in this space at one point. So the Merchant’s House Museum remains a unique time capsule of the life of a typical affluent New York merchant family of the 19th Century. The building contains the family’s original possessions!

Noho has two individually landmarked subway stations: Astor Place and Bleecker Street. For those seeking enrichment, the famous Public Theater sits on Lafayette Street. Along with five traditional performance venues, their organization owns Joe’s Pub, an exciting cabaret hotspot where anything can- and does- happen.
