Long gone are the artists' lofts (well ok the lofts haven't gone, but the tenants have been replaced by types who certainly don't have to sing for their supper). Alas even some of the more exciting contemporary art galleries and restaurants have been edged out by the steady march of brand homogeneity. Even so, I've still got a soft spot for the area on account of the way it used to be.

My favorite neighborhood in NY with the best people watching not on a beach in the world...Great restaurants with food from all around the world, bars, Art Galleries, Shopping etc. Ben's Pizza is great to grab a slice, hit the Spring Street Lounge for a beer, walk along West Broadway for Art Galleries and grab a cupcake at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop

New York City's famous SoHo gallery district. I remember going their when I was younger but as SoHo's fame grew the vibe of the area started to change and the galleries have begun to branch out from their original centralized location.

"South of Houston Street" is one of New York's trendiest enclaves, made famous by the "cool" gang of artists and free thinkers. I almost expect to see black berets and painted canvasses on every corner, but the handmade jewelry, artwork, crafts, and general laid-back attitude is satisfying enough.Recommended for:Trendsters

I love SoHo!!! There are so many nice Cafés, little clothing stores with individual things and many more! Explore the area, there is so much to see! :)

SoHo offers a different flavor of Manhattan, away from the intense and infinite busy-ness of midtown Manhattan. Here, I can take a breathe and really do some quality shopping without being overwhelmed by the bling-blings and excitement of the New York City. There are plenty of boutiques in SoHo, everything from common mall stores to high-end boutiques like Anna Sui. Only a few streets from Manhattan Chinatown and East Village and host of the famous Georgetown cupcakes, plentiful of delicious food can be found around the SoHo area.

I used to love Soho when it was gritty, artsy, and slightly rough around the edges. Now it's a giant high end shopping mall. Seriously, you will find everything from Old Navy to Chanel, Crocs to Dr. Marten's, Topshop to Bloomingdales. Always packed and full of tourists who are in predatory shopping mode.

Manhattan's mecca of art and fashion. You can spend an entire day browsing the stores and checking out the galleries. For locals, this is one of the best neighborhoods you can live (and more expensive). Many of the streets (Broadway and Spring) are heavily touristy; however, perpendicular and parallel streets are less crowded and full of gems.

Shopping in Soho is so much fun! There are more and more name brand stores these days rather then local designers but if you look hard enough there are plenty of boutiques to keep you busy. Soho probably isn't the cheapest place to shop but it's still one of my favorite places to walk around. Other than shopping there isn't too much to do, I head there strictly to shop.
