Named for its location “South of Houston” street, Soho is one of New York’s most desirable and stylishly eclectic neighborhoods. Encompassing the area between Houston and Canal Streets from Broadway to the Hudson River, the flourishing main shopping areas of Broadway and West Broadway, intersected by charming cobblestone-lined side streets, are lined with a wealth of fine shops, design stores and unique boutiques. Also known for its dynamic nightlife, SoHo is home to a variety of performance centers, clubs and lounges along with superb restaurants, European-style cafes, and several new hotels.
Soho’s beautiful cobblestone streets are always teeming with tourists, shoppers, and photographers taking advantage of the photo-worthy cast-iron architecture. This former industrial warehouse district preserves the city’s largest collection of highly ornate cast-iron architecture, now beautifully restored as stunning, highly sought-after loft spaces with soaring ceilings and dramatic light through walls of windows. Soho real estate is now home to successful business professionals as well as artists. The area also offers luxurious co-ops. Vacancy and turnover rates are famously low. Average residential property price per sq. ft. is around US $1,621.
