I do not know why Trip advisor just lists neighbourhoods in NY, as attractions. I am English and lived in NY for 6 months. SoHo is just another neighbourhood. It is a nice enough place to walk around, people watch, stop for a few drinks and something to eat, like all of New York. If I was a tourist, there... More

We loved the little boutique shops & eateries in Soho and Nolita. BUT, the shops and outlets are crazy. We went on a Saturday, and it was absolutely insane. People were so crowded, pushing and shoving, and with umbrellas, since it was raining outside. It was miserable once we left the cute boutiques. It was every bad stereotype of New... More

The amount and diverse alternatives of great clothing stores between Spring St. and Houston St. in Broadway Ave NYC is just excellent and will satisfy both men and women. Its usually a burden to find a small sector with a good variety of stores all together. This area is a must for any shoppers that are looking for good quality... More

Think Georgetown with much cooler stores. Loved being around the neighborhood (Michael Kors and the someone's house…literally). Great place to just walk around.

We spent the day in Soho shopping for my daughter's 16th birthday. 5 teenage girls and all of their favorite stores in walking distance. Brandy Mellville, Top Shop, American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, Anthropology, Lululemon, and H&m. We stopped for a delicious lunch at Le Pain. A fantastic day!

Lots and lots of shopping. Many different stores and boutiques low end to high end. Shoes, bags, clothing, food. Everything needed all in one area.

Tip 1: Ok, nothing is cheap in New York, food are rather expensive in NYC. If you want to have lunch lunch in Soho, make sure you have enough money in your wallet. Tip 2: For me, I think Soho is more like a place for people to walk around and people-watching. It is not a place to have lunch... More

I found that this was the best place to shop in the whole of New York! all the best designer stores and all of my favourite brands all in the same area! absolutely amazing! but not good for the pocket, ended up spending so much money.
