The Architecture of Soho New York City

I recently had a trip to the area of Soho in New York City. It is a really great place, with so much character. The architecture really makes you just smile, every turn you make. 

Here is some history from Soho NYC Website

SoHo is shorthand for south of Houston (pronounced "how-stun"). It is the first official acronym given to a neighborhood in NYC. The official historical district from 1973 together with Houston to the north, is north of Canal Street, and between West Broadway and Crosby Streets.

This most diverse neighborhood in lower Manhattan has had a long history before becoming the heart and soul of New York City.  Artists such as Phillip Glass, Twyla Tharp, Nam June Paik, Meredith Monk, Chuck Close, Frank Stella, plus many others helped create the ideal situation to make SoHo the Nexus of creative activity for a very magical time in the 1960's. SoHo came to represent the hip, avant garde scene.

Here is some photographs I took as I strolled around, and I hope you enjoy all the uniqueness Soho has to offer! 

After all this walking, nothing a Georgetown Cupcake can't make feel better! They are located on 111 Mercer Street, which is just adorable by the way:
Yep, cobblestone street! So fabulous! 

Have you been to Soho? What is your favorite place ?
