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. SoHo later became a district characterized by entertainment and commerce, and the area’s back streets transformed into what became known as NYC’s “Red Light District.” This change in character lead to a population shift, and SoHo temporarily became an industrial wasteland. But in the 1970s, artists put SoHo back on the map. The area was rediscovered for its spacious lofts with natural sunlight. Exhibiting a pattern of gentrification known today as “the SoHo effect”, SoHo soon shifted from a backwater of poor artists to a tourist attraction inhabited by the affluent.

Today, the population in SoHo is around 13,310. Most residents are members of prosperous families or high-earning professionals. The vibe is active, artsy, and fashionable. SoHo’s northern streets are clustered with boutiques, galleries, and restaurants that attract thousands of tourists daily. Film buffs frequent both the Angelika Film Center and Film Forum, and art lovers enjoy several prestigious galleries including the Deitch Project, the Staley-Wise gallery, and AFA. The bar and restaurant scene in SoHo is expansive. Balthazar Restaurant offers spectacular French food, Lure Fishbar is renowned for its delicious Seafood, and Pegu Club is highly acclaimed for its cocktails. The neighborhood is also characterized by numerous cafés, bakeries, and coffee shops.
