Keeping it simple - Much preferred this over Chinatown and Little Italy. Shops all over, quaint restaurants, nice people watching, wonderful old architecture that has been cleaned up, must see to NYC!

Soho what an area. Great restaurants, bars, galleries, and stores. Definitely one of the IN neighborhoods in NYC

I just loved the vibe of SoHo. Crazy fashion, random street markets, independent bookstores in the middle of poetry readings. Little Italy. I just loved everything about it. I love how everyone just has their own unique vibe/fashion and its really accepted. People will comment on what you're wearing on a regular basis. Loved it, just wandering around the streets... More

SoHo (named derived from its similarity to London Soho, but also from South of Houston). Formerly a bohemian quarter of artists, presently so overpriced that art galleries have moved to Chelsea. Home to expensive and trendy upscale boutiques and chain store outlets, full of charming narrow cobblestone side streets and fire escapes facing the street! A little bit of history... More

Soho is very colorful with lots of great architecture - I loved the cobble stone streets and the old buildings with fire escapes facing street side. Lots of boutique stores, cafes, galleries and a couple of museums in the area; ran across a beautiful church on Houston Street- St. Anthony’s may have been the name, think the cross street was...

Wow....did we spend some money here. All the trendy stores & high end ones as well. I will say there is not a lot of bathrooms, so plan according...LOL. We just got incredible deals.

Our New York office is actually in SoHo so I typically fly down and come to this area in New York very often for business. It's a great little neighbourhood with tons of nice, fine-dining Italian restaurants. I heard the shopping here is very good but I have yet to go. Highly recommended if you like these things.

This is my favorite area in NYC to shop. Many upper-end stores (as well as places like The Gap) that have items that you can't find elsewhere. It gets crowded, but I think 5th Avenue is worse. The shoppers in SoHo seems younger than the shoppers on 5th Avenue. Lots of fun little restaurants and cupcakeries as well.

Soho has the best shopping. Very trendy area with great bistros and delis. A good starting point is Prince Street
