  • New York
  • SoHo district, one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in New York

    Located in the Manhattan Island, SoHo (SOuth of HOuston Street) is known as New York artists’ meeting place to go shopping.

    The neighbourhood was home to Manhattan’s first African-American community in the 17th century. In the 19th century, the neighbourhood became progressively upper-class. Today, casinos, trendy restaurants, modern art galleries and name-brand chain stores have proliferated in the neighbourhood.

    Its imposing high-rise buildings with cast-iron facades define the neighbourhood’s architectural style. Certain streets are lined with columns and you can find numerous pastel-coloured painted mouldings and pediments.

    Also worth discovering: among the neighbourhood’s remarkable edifices, you can note the Prada building, offering an elegant decor designed by architect Rem Koolhaas, as well as the Singer Building, a twelve-story Art Nouveau styled-edifice built at the beginning of the twentieth century.
