South of Houston Street, the unofficial southern border of Greenwich Village – shorted to SoHo – and west of Little Italy this bustling neighborhood is a small area with boundaries of Broadway, the Hudson River, Houston and Canal Streets. Residential homes primarily sit in the Cast Iron Historic District, with a mix of some of the finest shopping in New York City!
Residents enjoy both the bustle that comes with world-renowned shopping at their doorstep and the relaxed charm of cobblestone streets and classic architecture. Everyone else stops by to enjoy everything else SoHo has to offer! Charming boutiques and galleries mixed with international designers like Chanel and Prada line the streets. No matter what you’re looking for – from clothing and jewelry to high-end housewares and furniture – SoHo has it! Add to that a ton of fabulous restaurants and services, and SoHo is a neighborhood catering to the finer things in life.
In the 1960s, artists discovered the formerly industrial area, full of inexpensive and spacious studios and housing. By the early ’70s, the presence of so many artists led to the area’s renaissance—industrial loft spaces were renovated into stunning lofts, real estate boomed and businesses began to flood into the area. What happened next was a blooming that turned SoHo into a world-class shopping paradise.
But that isn’t all SoHo has to offer. Residents know there’s more to that; cobblestone streets, art galleries, quiet European coffee shops, and charming eateries make this a truly lovely neighborhood to settle into.
Real estate options in the SoHo neighborhood range from warehouses renovated into light and airy lofts, to new construction modern buildings. Condos, multi-family homes, lofts, and row houses are available in a multitude of cost and design style. This is the place to find both unique and classic architecture, all in a vibrant and exciting neighborhood.
The neighborhood is easily accessible via Subway, using the A, C, and E trains to Spring Street; 1 and 2 trains to Houston Street; the N, Q, R and W trains to Prince Street, and the 4 and 6 trains to Spring Street. There are also several buses that serve the area.
