    I spend a couple of hours walking around here over a couple of days. This is ground zero for high fashion shopping, and there were fashion shoots on the streets. The architecture is unique, lots of old industrial lofts that have been transformed years ago. Some good places to eat and drink. Fashion.

    Nice Area
    I thought that SoHo in New York was just the name of the area similar to Soho in London. I did not realise that it was because it is the area South of Houston Street. I then discovered there is NoHo. The areas south of Midtown are some of the trendier areas of the city. SoHo falls into this category. Canal Street is here and this is a place to get clothes or other items that may not be official. There are some cool shops, bars and restaurants as well as some great street art. Well worth exploring.

    Quirky unique hotel
    Once additional payment sorted out which we weren’t made aware of when booking with the travel agent in the uk we had a great stay in this quirky hotel with lots of character. The room was small but we found room for everything for our 5 night stay. It was clean and nice and quiet with a lovely comfortable bed. Lots of electrical points for our iPhones iPads etc and the shower was great with the complimentary soap shower gel shampoo and conditioner which I have looked to purchase since as it smelt so good! Good location for exploring all of New York with a couple of subway stations within 5 minutes walk. Saying that we walked to Brooklyn over the Manhattan bridge and back over the Brooklyn bridge and into the financial district. Staff very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much of a problem. Would definitely stay there again if we have to opportunity to visit New York.

    Loved soho
    My favourite neighbourhood in New York City, it was more laid back, friendly and a lot less busy than Times Square and the surrounding area. Great for more unique independent coffee shops and restaurants which I think gives you the true New York experience rather than chain brands. It gives major friends vibes around the area and a lot cleaner and nicer

    Worth a walk around
    SoHo consists of quite a number of high-end shops. We visited on a guided walking tour and the tour guide said one can pay approx. $700 for a cotton Tshirt here. Apparently, a number of shops are not making a profit, but it is good marketing to have a store front in SoHo. The architecture of the buildings in this area is also quite interesting. I’d recommend taking the walking tour to get a better understanding of what you are looking at in SoHo.

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 or dinner because it cost too much.

Tip 3: No matter what day of the week you go to Soho, it is very packed. Filled with tourists!

Tip 4: Looking for a bathroom would be difficult, make sure you find out where is the nearest Macdonald.

My friend and I visited NY in Oct of 2002. We were told to visit SoHo... we were not disappointed! The deals found there are FANTASTIC!
Lots of little shops and boutiques.... designer knockoffs at awesome prices look just like the real thing! Just a reminder though, most of the shops there DO NOT take credit cards, and some not even a traveller's check!! Cash works best. Also, if you like something, act disinterested... you can haggle yourself an even better deal! Spent hours here. Would recommend it to all visitors.

I work in Soho and love this beautiful neighborhood! There's a lot more to experience than just shopping, though! I put together a little Youtube video highlighting some of my favorite local things that are a bit off the radar, hope you enjoy them :-)

Forget about the "Garment District". I wanted to do some real New York shopping for clothes/shoes and the Garment District is a huge disappointment. I decided to check out SoHo and it was the coolest collection of shops. It's a good mix of very high end to some real discount places. If you don't know where to start, head to Washington (the one by Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village) and Broadway and walk south down Broadway. Broadway alone is blocks and blocks of fun shopping. From there you can cut in and out of the little side streets in the SoHo area for more cool shopping. The food is fun in this area as well. We had excellent deli sandwiches at Olives on Prince Street. The Clinton St Baking Co is notorious for breakfast.

Here are many boutiques, that most of us can't afford. But you can shop affordabily in the awesome MoMa museum shop and in the Paul Frank Store at Mulberry Street.
The best shop in Soho is Dean Deluca! GO THERE, I wouldn't want to leave that place for hours.

Took my 15 year old grand daughter shopping in Soho. I carried the bags and paid the bills. It was a LOT of fun. Start on Broadway and Prince and work south. Do the side streets off Broadway for a couple of blocks in each direction. Plan on spending two days. We learned: You can pay whatever you want for whatever you want. A pair of jeans can range in price from a little more than I would expect to pay for a glass of wine up to what I might pay for a used car. Guys, don't miss the Frye Boot store at 113 Spring Street. Also, I didn't know it, but the world famous "Top Shop" on 478 Broadway has a men's department... but you need to be able to wear "Slim Fit". My grand daughter kept gravitating back to Brandy Melville at 518 Broadway. Me, I just kept going back to Dean & DeLuca for snack breaks. If you have a shopper, particularly one that is thin and hip, this is the place!

Everyone else mentions the shopping in Soho, well go if you are interested in seeing some beautiful architecture! We did a walking tour of the area that focused on the cast iron facades of the buildings. Unless you know what to look for, you won't even realize the facades are cast iron. This was one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC for the architecture.
