Greenwich Village was fascinating. SoHo was so-so. I only visited on foot while staying just off Union Square, but recognized many of SoHo's businesses from shopping malls back home. I know there are out-of-the-way places I missed, but found myself returning to the Village rather than SoHo during my stay in New York. (If I were a youthful shopper rather... More

Recently spend the day in Soho and Noho in lower Manhattan. For those not too familiar with this part of NYC, Soho is essentially from Canal Street north to Houston Street and Noho is essentially Houston Street north to Union Square (14th Street). Between Canal Street and 14th Street you will find an array of stores, eateries, antiques, and unique... More

SoHo is a very happening district. The lofts, the galleries, the shops are AAAHHHHMAAZZZZINNG!! The clothes are unique which is hard to find now , the cafes are great, Nepresso is interesting, the art streetdealers add charm for me! It's a great way to talk and learn about people - so nice. The cobblestone pavement is my favorite and Pearl... More

The best advice I can give is to spend a couple of hours shopping in Soho and then walk to nearby Chinatown and Little Italy. To me, this is a perfect way to spend an afternoon in NYC. A lot of designers have shops in the Soho area, and the shoppping area along Spring St and Greene St rivals that... More

Fancy, trendy, cool, chilled - to name only a few words to describe SoHo! Just a nice area to spend hours of shopping and hanging around on a nice day in NYC. You feel like in a total different city, the people, the architecture, the shops (far away from the usual - of course you can find an Apple-Store but... More

Just hang around. Suprisingly good restaurants around. Relly just pop in anywhere and you'd probalby be pleased. Totally party at night, preferably at summers where the barhopping is even better. If you dont wanna party, just take a stroll around and observe, it will still make u smil.

We took the walking tour of Soho/Chinatown and Little Italy with Jamie. The weather was super cold, but she was so fun and charming we almost forgot to notice! She had great stories and facts about the area, as well as great tips for shopping and eating. Especially loved the "dumpling nazi"

An objectively ugly looking area with great atmosphere and a lot of great bars, shops, interesting people, awesome food as well. Deserves the hype.

Came here thinking of SoHo as THE PLACE in New York for art (as someone who only knows those general bits and bobs about NY) but turns out all the real art and artsy people have moved to cheaper locations in Brooklyn or even further. It used to be a great spot for galleries but now the few remaining ones... More

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.
