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

It's a good place for shopping. Majority of people were extremely nice and helpful. One star missing because of the attitude of the women in the bare minerals store.

What a surprise, went for a walk through china town and little italy eventually reaching Soho. Lovely area with some wonderful boutiques and trendy shops. Plenty of eateries and cafes. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around all the avenues and into some of the art galleries.

I am not a shopper, yet I found some fun in SoHo. South of Houston, it has a greater collection of stores that serves the fashionable and trendy. My favorite store was the Will Leather and Schott stores. Great service with high quality products means that I need to save my pennies to come back here. Just be careful about... More

Ladies and gentlemen (or probably only the ladies, maybe :P), from Canal St to Houston St., this portion of Broadway will blow you away with its highly famous marks of clothes, shoes, jewelry and so forth. Go walk, from noon to midnight, to discover its shops, to admire the buildings and to buy some of the most wanted models in... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
