Prince St, Nolita
Just above Little Italy lies Nolita, one of the trendiest Manhattan nabes, which entices stylish passersby with its storefronts, chic sidewalk cafés and happening nightlife. Shopping addicts beware, as Prince Street is flooded with irresistible street vendors selling jewelry and artwork. (There’s also buzzworthy brick-and-mortar stores on the same block.) Once the shopping fatigue sets in, find solace at a bright, authentic Italian restaurant serving comfort foods like pizza and pasta.
The smell of wood-fired pizza fills this warm Italian eatery with a skylighted backroom. Indulge in all the starchy offerings, especially the pappardelle bolognese. 231 Mott St (212-966-1234, emporiony.com)
The Black Lodge
At the entrance of this speakeasy, descend the Twin Peaks–esque stairs to sip refreshing cocktails and dance under a disco ball. 20 Prince St (212-966-8886, theblacklodge.co)
This consignment shop is notable for carrying vintage designer wares and accessories by Isabel Marant, Gucci and Christian Louboutin starting at $150. Yes, the price is steep, but if you consign your tired duds, you can get up to 70 percent off in-store. 21 Prince St (212-334-9048, inanyc.com)
