Hello SoHo / Nolita
Look no further than SoHo, NoHo, and neighboring Nolita if you’re in need of a spot of retail therapy in New York. Chain stores and fashion boutiques mingle seamlessly with hip independent retailers selling everything from antiquarian books and quirky home interiors. However, SoHo’s retail opportunities only begin to scratch the surface of what this lively neighborhood is all about. The cafe culture is every bit as popular, and sitting yourself down with an espresso to watch some of New York’s more eccentric characters go about their daily business is a great way to spend an hour or two. The cultural enclaves of Little Italy and Chinatown are only a hop, skip and a jump away, too, and represent two of New York’s most colorful and historically rich neighborhoods.
