Soho, New York

Now that its impeccably preserved cast-iron fire escapes and industrial facades showcase the wares of Chanel, Prada and numerous less exalted brands, the area south of Houston Street is a far cry from the hardscrabble manufacturing zone that once earned the derisive nickname Hell’s Hundred Acres. But don’t write off Soho as a mere urban shopping mall; though many of the art galleries that made Soho New York's contemporary-art hot spot in the 1970s and ’80s decamped to Chelsea and the Lower East Side, some excellent art spaces remain. Walk along the cobblestone streets and find great New York restaurants, bars and things to do in this downtown neighborhood.

SoHo, ada South of Houston, boasts an artistic legacy and has become one of the city's premier shopping corridors. The neighborhood itself is adjacent to NoHo, West Village, Greenwich Village, Nolita, Little Italy/Chinatown and Tribeca. Those who choose to make their home in the area will never ceased to be amazed with the abundance of tourists, young professionals and celebrities that frequent this neighborhood. SoHo is home to plenty of beautiful cast-iron pre-war buildings and lofts.

Soho is definitely one of the nicest parts of NYC.  Easy to stroll around. Drop into the historic "Ear" Inn for a relaxing break or Puck Fair pub.
