With its delightful cobblestone streets and spectacular cast-iron architecture SoHo is the quintessential New York City neighborhood. This coveted, and pricey, enclave runs between Houston and Canal streets between 6th Avenue and Crosby Street.
The SoHo Cast-Iron Historic District protects the important buildings here, which typically feature stores or restaurants on the ground floor while upper levels are filled with SoHo lofts for sale. Although a small number of new-constructions buildings can be found in the neighborhood, the historic buildings were primarily built in the 1870s as the area became a center for mercantile and dry goods trades. These cast-iron store-and-loft buildings gave merchants space to display and sell goods on the ground floors, while using the floors above for storage and manufacturing. Oversized windows and tall ceilings provided illumination and space for equipment. Nearly a century later, those features would attract the artist class that renewed interest in the neighborhood after decades of benign neglect.
Dubbed SoHo for its position south of Houston, the SoHo Cast-Iron Historic District now represents the largest collection of intact cast-iron architecture in the world. Today’s SoHo lofts for sale are filled with premium finishes and modern conveniences alongside original details like original columns, exposed brick and soaring tin ceilings.
What SoHo lacks in expansive outdoor space, it makes up for in its abundant charm and its bustling shopping and dining scene. Nearly every luxury retailer in the world can be found on the nearby blocks, and Broadway is a destination for shoppers from around the globe. Some of the New York’s best restaurants can be found in SoHo, and the dozen nearby subway lines make this slice of Old New York easily accessible from anywhere in the city.
