SoHo Neighborhood Guide

Stretching from Canal Street in the South to Houston Street in the North, the Eastern boundary is Lafayette Street with the Western boundary being the Hudson River.

SoHo’s narrow, cobblestone streets with cast iron buildings and designer boutiques draw the crowds. Here you’ll find the piers along the Hudson and the Hudson River Parkway, a beautiful place for views of the downtown Manhattan skyline. As the largest surviving cast iron district in the world, it became the center of the lower Manhattan art scene, followed by new trends in stylish boutiques, galleries and cafes.
