Nolitan (inhabitant of Nolita, Manhattan)

"Nolitan” is the name of an inhabitant of Nolita, in the borough of Manhattan. The name “Nolitan” has been cited in print since at least 2008.

Wikipedia: Nolita
Nolita, sometimes written as NoLIta, and deriving from “NOrth of Little ITAly"[1][2][3] is a neighborhood in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. Nolita is bounded on the north by Houston Street, on the east by the Bowery, on the south roughly by Broome Street, and on the west by Lafayette Street. It lies east of SoHo, south of NoHo, west of the Lower East Side, and north of Little Italy and Chinatown.

But you could not get NoLItans to Columbus Avenue unless you snatched them off the street and lashed them to the wheels of northbound trucks.

McNally Johnson Bookstore, A Place of Refuge (or not!)
In the borough of Nolita where money and appearance reign supreme, I was happy to find refuge in a quaint little book store called McNAlly Jackson (or at least what I thought was refuge). At first glance the store seems like any other books store, but this one is special. Like everything else in Nolita, it’s for the young, hip professional type. The titles of the books as trendy and eye catching as the clothing the Nolitans wear, especially the books in the front of the store.

okay; just when i thought the boutique hotel thing was winding down, im horrified to read about a place oddly entitled; the Nolitan.  Roll out the red carpet kids. When I lived in Nolita; did that make me one of these Nolitans?  What is a Nolitan? An Avatar-like-Alien who wears Three as Four wardrobe and dreams of a dinner with Bjork.  Regardless, the little trendy pink website is up; you can check it here.

As Nolita has become more hip, trendy and expensive in recent years, gripes about the annual Feast of San Gennaro street fair have been getting louder.
