NoHo is a neighborhood just North of Houston street. It’s a design centric area with lots of creative agencies, galleries and unique architecture. The neighborhood was once home to artists like Andy Warhol and the CBGB music club. This guide makes for a great Saturday or Sunday afternoon from brunch to a little art. Enjoy!
