The Noho Arts District is a beautiful little area filled with apartments, shops, galleries, restaurants and theatres. Just walking down one street you'll pass little theaters were you can see plays, a billards hall, countless thrift stores and many different restaurants ranging from a pizza factory to sushi. The area around Noho District isn't the best, the roads are shot and drive a few more blocks and you're in the ghetto. But it's still a great place to find art, clothes and fine food. Right down the street is the metrolink stop, which makes it convenient to find and visit. It's a really nice place to spend the afternoon shopping and watching plays.
