SoHo Reviews

6
All Categories
Soho is a wonderful area, full of interesting people, lots of great stores, both "ma and pa" and corporate, fabulous cafes and restaurants, and fascinating historical sites, such as Aaron Burr's townhouse on Prince Street. I have lived in Soho for several decades, and I have witnessed the transformation from a middle class neighborhood to the hippest place in Manhattan, home to the wealthy elite and celebrities. Real estate and shopping prices have skyrocketed and many residents are not full time, but also have vacation homes elsewhere. Still, Soho is a very relaxed and informal place, where people still hang out on the street and watch the world go by.

Soho is one of the best neighborhoods in NYC. It has access to all subway lines, but you need not travel above 23rd street to get what you need. There are many wonderful restaurants and shops. The streets are always alive with energetic people. While it can get crowded on weekends, it is still a wonderful place to live.
Simply amazing. If you're coming from out of state and want to see what New York is all about, SoHo is where to go!
