I am from Thailand. My son insisted us to have brunch and hang out at SoHo. I love the neighborhood. There are many unique eateries and shops. I think that every shop tries to make his shop more stand out for tourists.

Great buzz about SoHo. Close to fabulous restaurants, not to mention Little Italy and China Town. Shops are plentiful - from high end designers to High Street stores. Definitely worth spending some time here.

Forget 5th Avenue, Soho in Downtown Manhattan is a great place for that 'High End' Shopping. It is quieter, and has some fabulous stores including, Ralph Laurent, Gucci, Prada etc. As well some privately owned little gift shops etc.

Another good place to walk through to say you did. I think this is the High-life part of New York today. It used to be Fifth Avenue, and still is to an extent, but if you have a place in SoHo your ship has arrived. Prices in the area seem to reflect a very nice ship indeed. While walking New... More

Soho wasnt all that outstading for us. Its a nice area with lots of great shops but thats about it. There is hardly anywhere to eat unless you go further to little italy or china town(wouldnt recommend). We went purely for the iconic 'bloomingdales' which we enjoyed. Its out of the real bus hustle and bustle of new york but... More

This area of the city is a little less congested than 5th Avenue and has many of the same retail stores along with tons of cute boutique stores. The buildings in this part of the city are also very pretty and historical. 5th Avenue tends to have a very posh, upperclass feel to it whereas SoHo has a more laid... More

SoHo has a great name and PRs. After walking through some 20 galleries and tasting some local goodies we've been left with much disappointment.

Soho is one of the most charming areas of New York City, with some old school architecture, plenty of restaurants and wonderful café's to sit back and enjoy the area there is something for everyone.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
