New York The Soho Area

Planning to visit SoHo in New York? This part of Manhattan is definitely worth devoting a little bit of time to! Located in Lower Manhattan, between Sixth Avenue and Canal Street, this neighborhood is packed with art galleries and boutiques. Its full name is South of Houtson Street, and it was declared as a national historic landmark in 1973. Here’s a few ideas about how to spend you time in NYC’s Soho area…

Soho New York is THE place to run into celebrities enjoying the SoHo nightlife, and you might also recognize some famous artists wandering around there. This neighborhood used to attract many artists; they started flocking to Soho earlier in the 60’s when it was still just an industrial zone, with many opportunities to young artists. In the 70’s, the neighborhood shifted from being a place where young starting artists with little money used to live, into a trendy and more expensive living area.
