My favourite nook of downtown Manhattan, also where I call home. An abundance of cafes, bars and places to hangout - whatever you do make sure you go here.
Nolita is cafe kingdom. So many epic choices, but be prepared to wait for most of these unless you're there early. Trust me, it's worth it.
So many choices in just a few blocks. Here are the best coffee shops in the area, and in the city (in my POV). Plus a few bars for a late night tipple.
