Big apple appeal
One of New York City’s most fashionable neighbourhood’s, SoHo, an acronym for South of Houston (Street) underwent a major urban renewal in the 1970s, transforming it from an industrial zone into one of the world’s top art centres. Today, SoHo is a mix of creatives, financiers and A-listers, who are attracted to the hip nightclubs, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and the designer lofts housed in the iconic cast iron buildings that line its cobblestone streets.
New York City, known as the city that never sleeps, is a hub of activity of every kind. Top attractions include Central Park, the Empire State Building, Times Square, Broadway and off-Broadway theatre, and more world-class museums and art galleries than anyone can count.
