Soho - South of Houston (pronounced "How-Stun")

Since not everyone may be familiar with why Soho is called Soho I decided to title the post to explain. Soho is a great area to walk around in NYC and is easy to get to via subway or cab. It is a very different pace from midtown and has some great shops and cafes as well as art galleries. It is north of Canal Street, South of Houston and west of Crosby Street. Here are some of the great sites within the area of Soho ..........

this was taken in the Bloomingdales located on Broadway and Broome Street, thought it was a great display since I love to take photos...this is a nice smaller size than the original on Lexington Avenue and a fun place to check out


this is TopShop and TopMan ...a great store from London with some shoes,clothes and jewelry to die for !! This is a definate must try when in Soho and it's very near Bloomies so easy to get to .......


I wasn't supposed to take photos in the store but sneaked in this great chair....I would definately pay for this in my home ....great for a bedroom in my opinion.......


Swarovski Crystallized Store ....the only one in NYC and a very neat concept. They carry different beads and designs - you create your own earrings and necklaces - you have all price ranges and is a really cool idea, very personal way to purchase jewelry for yourself or a gift


these were in the window and I thought just fabulous!! They would be great layered all together .....


So Good Jewelry near Bloomies on Broadway as well, great inexpensive jewelry and nice for the younger crowd to buy some things that won't break the bank ( I loove the stuff as well - tonz of selections)


Pearl River Mart across from Bloomies on Broadway is a great place to check out.....a Chinese department store , it has a few floors and just really neat items you will not find anywhere else ....cookware, lamps, chinese tea, clothes,birdcages....I could go on and on but you get the picture!!


How great is this? This was in the morning so it was very empty but looks like we stepped back in time....


Antique Garage restaurant...Mercer Street near Grand Street, Mediterranean, Turkish cuisine, open 11am till midnight.. .such a fun place ...... many A-listers frequent the place ......


the International Culinary Center .......L'Ecole, is a restaurant with students making the classic and contemporary French cuisine. It is always highly rated and serve lunch/dinner. Reservations are suggested via their website.


saw this Vespa parked near a great white building....looked soo comfy !!!!

I hope you enjoyed your small visit thru Soho and it will encourage you to visit next time you are in NYC !!
