SoHo

Once the epicenter of the New York art scene, SoHo today is now more synomous with shopping. A bit of bohemia still exists on the cobblestone side streets, where there are charming restaurants with sidewalk seating and some of the art galleries that haven't scattered elsewhere. The main thoroughfares tend to have sidewalks full of tables with handmade jewelry, leather belts, hats, and purses. If you take the time to look, there's a local vibe here beneath the glitzy boutiques—elderly residents speaking Italian on the corners around Sullivan Street and Thompson Street reveal the neighborhood's Italian past.
