SoHo, South of Houston, offers an excellent Downtown location and a unique interpretation of industrial neighborhood-turned-bohemian-enclave-turned-luxury-neighborhood.
With reminders of the 80's downtown renaissance still apparent on the occasional graffiti covered wall, SoHo’s blocks are bursting with trendsetters and trend-watchers alike. Dominated by converted loft buildings with their distinctive cast iron columns and more recent luxury construction, there are still mid-century and older tenement style buildings on the periphery of the area to the North and West.
Exclusive hotels, restaurants, and boutiques make this a perennial destination for the young and beautiful yet boasts a population of important artists that gave this neighborhood its fame.
Community events like the annual Festival of St. Joseph on Sullivan Street, however, speak to the enduring legacy of Italians in the area.
