1. History:

North Davidson street is the Main Street of NoDa, which is how this community got it’s name (No-Da). NoDa began as a mill village along North Davidson street. After the last mill closed in 1975 the neighborhood drifted into poverty and crime before becoming an edgy punk rock oasis in the 1990s, thanks to the now closed ‘Fat City Deli.’ At the same time NoDa started billing itself as an arts district, where the low rents were supposed to encourage the most creative amongst us to move in, make things, and sell them nearby.

But, the recession of 2006-2008 killed off most of the galleries on North Davidson. However, over the past decade or so, we have seen a plethora of eclectic restaurants, entertainment venues, and breweries enter the neighborhood. This breathed new life into the community and began the revitalization that made NoDa what it is today!
