One of the most popular areas in Manhattan, the SoHo area of New York is named after "South of Houston," a name given to the area by local artists who came to the area seeking spaces they could both live and work. SoHo is known for extraordinary lofts in which artists can do just that. The area boasts the largest collection of cast-iron architecture in the world, with approximately 250 buildings of cast-iron. Along with the great architecture, the area is known for fabulous shopping. SoHo is the home of many celebrities, artists, and those who love to express their creative sides. SoHo is centrally located in Manhattan, and is surrounded by Greenwich Village, Tribeca, and Little Italy.
