NoDa (short for "North Davidson") is an arts district in Charlotte not far from Uptown. It was an area of textile manufacturing and the residence of the mill's workers from 1903 until 1953 when the mill was sold and the concept of mill village faded. In the 1990s, the neighborhood started to enjoy an artistic flourishing, when pioneer artists began to renovate buildings and opened galleries. The mills were preserved and transferred into residence and businesses. And a lot of bars and breweries keep the neighborhood awake at nights.
