SoHo – South of Houston Street. It’s huge. It’s beautiful. It has almost everything you might need. It’s practically perfect and there is no better way to experience it than by walking it! I recommend starting right here, on the corner of East Houston & Bowery. The mural there changes every couple of months and it’s always great! Close by you have Whole Foods, where you can get yummy food and sweets from the buffé to take away and sit in the public garden across the street. From there, walk south on Bowery, at least down to Spring Street or Kenmare and then head north again on Elisabeth Street. When you reach Houston, take south on Mott Street. Repeat and repeat until you reach Broadway, at least – it’s going to take the whole day and it’s going to be worth every step and every minute!
This gorgeous wall is on the side of one of the cutest and coziest bakeries in SoHo – everything I’ve ever tasted in there also happens to be delicious. The Little Cupcake Bakeshop is on the corner of Prince & Mott Street, you should definitely take a walking break here. Try the Banana Cream Pudding or the Cheesecakes or the Angel Cake or the Coconut Cake or just you know, everything! I love to take my sweets and coffee and sit on the benches right outside, people watching in SoHo is also something worth wasting time on! Right across the street, on Prince, is one of the best bookshops in the city – McNally Jackson Books, specially if you like art, movies, music and design.
