Soho is located the historic neighborhood. Soho still retains its European style and old architectures. It is north of Canal Street and south of Houston. Soho is neighborhood of Greenwich Village, Little Italy, and the Financial District. Soho is also close to many convenient subway lines – A C E 1 N Q R 6 J M Z. Artists pushed this neighborhood from vacant warehouses into residential lofts. At that time the area was exclusively for artists and their studios.

This area transferred from farmland to the upper-class neighborhood in the early 19th century, with working actors and high-paid models living in the neighborhood. Soho has very unique architectures. All the buildings abound with all different beautiful styles. Residential homes include lofts, walkup and newer luxury buildings. Living in SoHo offers convenient access to all of downtown and everything you can imagine right outside your door.

It is also a shopping district. West Broadway and Broadway are the two major shopping strips. The district offers outstanding shopping from Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Prada. The Apple store has become a crowded hangout paradise. Today this area is one of the city’s most trendy areas, fashion galleries, music, restaurants, bars as much as anything else.
