The name Soho is actually an acronym for South of Houston Street. This trendy neighborhood, which was once the haven of the struggling artist, is now the home of exclusive shops, stylish boutiques, Bloomingdales and, of course, world class art galleries.
If you've come to the city to shop, and you're looking for more upscale fare (with some great bargains thrown in), then Soho should be on your "must visit" list.
A few of the stores you'll find in soho are Louis Vuitton, The Sharper Image, Steve Madden, Skechers, Coach, The Apple Store and numerous speciality shops and boutiques.
We also recommend Soho as a place to visit if you love fine architecture. Soho is famous for its numerous buildings with cast iron fire escapes on their facades.
South of Houston Street (of course) and North of Canal Street between Sullivan and Lafayette Streets.
Take the B, D, F, or V to the Broadway Lafayette Station, the N, R or W to Prince Street Station or the A, C, E to Spring Street. You can also take the #6 to Spring Street or 1 or 9 to Houston or Canal Street.
