An area long known for its designer boutiques and high-end art galleries, SoHo has also become one of the the top go-to destinations for Manhattan homebuyers.
The landmarked “South of Houston Street,” or SoHo, neighborhood was once a mecca for artists’ lofts. It is comprised of approximately 26 blocks over 500 buildings, many of which incorporate the area’s signature cast-iron architectural elements. SoHo’s alluring side streets are paved with Belgian blocks.
Today, the neighborhood attracts locals and visitors alike with its abundance of international outlet shops, exquisite cuisine and high-end fashion. SoHo is equally alive after the sun goes down, with visitors flocking to hotspots like City Winery, the Broome Street Bar and the famous landmarked Ear Inn — one of the oldest watering holes in the city.
SoHo’s many charms and relative overall safety have put the neighborhood on homebuyers’ radars. New construction in SoHo has heated up in recent years, and the flood of new high-end residences has helped to drive overall home prices up in the New York neighborhood. Consistently, SoHo is one of the city’s most expensive neighborhoods — trailing only nearby Tribeca.
