SoHo is a historic neighborhood in New York City that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

About SoHo:
Just south of Greenwich Village in lower Manhattan is the SoHo neighborhood. Along with the Village, SoHo has a history rooted in the New York City arts scene. Due to its adjacent border with The Village, it is part and parcel of the same experimental arts scene attributed mainly, at least outside of New York City, to Greenwich Village.

The term “SoHo” refers to the neighborhood’s location just South of Houston Street, and it is one of several New York City precincts that bear abbreviated names. The neighborhood, as an NYC Attraction, is known as the SoHo Cast Iron District. The area is a beautiful collection of around 500 structures which feature cast iron facades, some that date back to the late 18th century. The greater number of the period buildings in SoHo still standing were constructed in the second half of the 19th century. Cast iron provided a cheaper alternative to other materials while still creating ornate architectural features. Further affecting the period atmosphere is the block glass sidewalks designed to light basements pre-electricity and the cobblestones streets. The entire neighborhood was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

On top of the stunning visual impact the period architecture provides, there are plenty of things to do in SoHo besides checking out the buildings. There’s great shopping in SoHo at stores like American Two Shot, which incorporates a new trend of a boutique with a coffee shop in store where you can get your caffeine fix while perusing indie fashions. Babel Fair sources their inventory from all over the world, offering shoppers a chance to get some hard-to-find stuff. Bookworms will love Housing Works Bookstore Café’s warm ambiance with lots of mahogany woodwork. A half spiral staircase leads up to the terraced second level and a coffee and wine bar perfect for relaxing and reading a book.

This NYC Attraction is also home to some great food. Dominique Ansel Bakery offers great French and American pastries as well as soup and sandwiches. Lure Fishbar is a great place for the sushi enthusiast. Sidle up to the sushi bar, or sit in the dining room for other great seafood selections from their full menu. With whole stuffed lobsters, seared scallops, and miso glazed tuna, Lure is a seafood lovers paradise. Several turf items are also featured.

Don’t miss all that SoHo has to offer during your visit to New York City. It’s located a short distance from Park Lane Hotel.
