101 Seconds – New York’s SoHo

Flaneuring through New York’s SoHo in 101 seconds.

SoHo is inimitable, though other neighborhoods in New York and other cities have tried to recreate what makes this neighborhood special. Galleries, restaurants, high-end furniture and fashion. Or even knock-off Supreme and Gucci bags sold off the sidewalk on Canal.

It has some of the most expensive residential and retail property in the country. The cobble-stone streets. The cast-iron facades holding up massive windows, which perfect for the artists who moved into the neighborhood when in the late 70s and early 80s, before this former industrial neighborhood turned into the pinnacle of style, design, and fashion (though you could easily argue the Disneyland-ification of the neighborhood is complete, trying to recreate the creative urban experience of three decades ago but instead becoming the most stratified of any New York neighborhood; struggling artists can take the L train toward Canarsie. Past Williamsburg, of course.).
