SoHo - New York City
SoHo, which stands for South of Houston Street, is at Canal Street, between Sixth Avenue and Lafayette Street. Once the home of factories and warehouse buildings artists flocked to this area in the 50s and 60s because of the cheap loft space. Although the rising cost of real estate has driven many of the galleries to Tribeca, pockets still remain.
Walk down the area known for its Cast Iron Building architecture Green Street to see the highlights. Many of the once deteriorating buildings have been restore. In the 1970s, the area was given landmark status. The neighborhood is now a very trendy, rather upscale area with many shops, bars, restaurants and boutiques. Its a great place to visit at night, or on the weekend to walk around and just window shop.
