Boundaries: Houston Street to Canal Street and Broadway to The Hudson River
SoHo literally means “South of Houston” pronounced house-ton. SoHo boasts the largest collection of Cast iron buildings in the world. The different styles of architecture including Neo-Greco and Italianate were mostly constructed from 1840 to 1880.
Similar to TriBeca, SoHo was once an industrial hub. In the 1970’s the neighborhood was sought after by artists for its large windows and lofty spaces. Today SoHo is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the city and home to celebrities and the well to do. On weekends Soho is teaming with people from all walks of life, exploring its high end fashion boutiques, cobblestone streets, European style cafes, ultra chic restaurants, five star hotels, and Art Galleries.
