212 LAFAYETTE ST in SoHo

SoHo

Good transportation Great food Fun nightlife Cool factor

The streets of SoHo—filled with shopping activity during the day—are relatively empty in the evening. BUT socialites and night owls: fear not. You can still rent in SoHo and enjoy the nearby nightlife of its surrounding neighborhoods.

Known for its cobblestone streets and cast-iron architecture, the area now known as SoHo was originally farmland. In the late eighteenth century, paved sidewalks literally “paved the way” for homes and establishments.
