SoHo & Nolita

A few decades ago, the area South of Houston Street, or, as it’s popularly know today, SoHo, was favorited by up and coming artists, musicians and performers. Renting a large loft was cheap and many artists both lived and worked in them. In the 1980s and 1990s, dozens of galleries, bars and restaurants opened up and SoHo gradually became the shabby chic place to be seen.

Though there are still quite a few art galleries, most of which are located west of Broadway, today’s SoHo is the city’s trendiest shopping district with an eclectic range of boutiques and brands. It’s also where you’ll find some of Manhattan’s most popular restaurants and bars.

Interested in architecture design? SoHo has the largest collection of cast iron buildings in the world and is of course included in New York City’s ”Cast Iron Historic District”.

There are several chic hotels in SoHo and even more in nearby Lower East Side (LES) which connects via The Bowery, the adjacent area where several pop-up galleries and popular restaurants, bars and nightclubs have opened in recent years.

We could literally spend an entire week just walking around SoHo, taking in the sights and scenes. And since the neighborhood is so close to Little Italy, NoHo, Lower East Side, it’s the our favorite part of Lower Manhattan. We Love SoHo!
