The acronym “Soho” means “South of Houston st”. Soho is located in between Crosby st and Sixth ave.
Soho has a notoriety of being packed with shoppers, where it is a common sight to lines of shoppers lining the narrow streets. The surplus of commercial buildings has caused a limited amount of parks and outdoor seating, in contrast to the surrounding neighborhoods. Many residents take refuge from the ruckus by stopping in a local cafe or coffeeshop on Mercer st.
