SoHo is one of the city’s most eclectic shopping enclaves, with everything from upmarket boutiques, one-of-a-kind shops, galleries, to exalted brand name stores.
SoHo’s architecture adds to the shopping experience. Ornate cast-iron-fronted buildings, many of which date back to the late 19th century line the cobblestone streets with storefronts on street level and converted artists’ lofts above. These historic cast-iron architectural icons saved Soho from demolition in the 1960s, and is now one of the youngest and trendiest neighborhoods in Manhattan. Many luxury brands like Chanel, Dior, and Louis Vuitton share streets with small local boutiques and several great restaurants like Balthazar, Osteria Morini, Pera, Lure Fishbar and possibly the world’s best coffee and chocolate store Marie Belle on Broome Street.
Many celebrities have called SoHo home, notably Justin Timberlake, Meg Ryan, Hank Azaria, Cindy Sherman, Alicia Keys, Dakota Fanning, John Mayer, and Kelly Ripa. 10 Sullivan Street is a 16-story flatiron shaped tower designed by architect Cary Tamarkin. It is slated to have 27 luxury apartments and four attached townhouses. The building features 11-foot ceilings and heated floors in every unit. One bedrooms start from $2.55M and the five bedroom duplex is going for $25M. When completed 10 Sullivan will be one of the most desirable addresses in Soho. * The name SoHo is an acronym for “South of Houston Street”. It spans the area from south Houston Street to the north of Canal Street, and West Broadway to the Sixth Avenue.
