suggestive recommendations for your visit and to enjoy excellent cuisine
You will not need a map to get around Soho (South of Houston Street) and Nolita (North of Little Italy), even better would be wander through the streets and discover the neighborhood step by step. Take the subway to the Spring station and once you emerge enjoy the atmosphere, there’s a lot to see and do at this place. Walk around the streets Prince, Spring, Broome, West Broadway and Broadway (full with shops), Grand, Greene, Mercer, Lafayette, Mott and Crosby.
The neighborhoods of Soho and Nolita have a variety of great places to suit all tastes and these are my favorites.
Crosby Street Hotel 79, Crosby St. The hotel is in the heart of Soho. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, it is worth going inside to see the lobby, the garden and the dining room and why not enjoy a drink at the bar. Price range from US$500 and up.
