SoHo NYC. Tips for a worthwhile Full Day in SoHo

June 15th, 2017

With its cobblestone streets and Cast Iron architecture, the SoHo/NoLita neighborhood is worth a full day’s visit. Yes, like much of NY, its becoming “mallified” – big name brands pushing out indie stores- but there is still plenty of interesting shopping and far more. Our recommendation (including our own “plug”:)

New Museum of Contemporary Art (great architecture in NYC)

A Friday:
1)11am: Pay a visit to THE NEW MUSEUM, for contemporary art in a stunning physical structure. 
2)Noon: Lunch at DELICATESSAN www.delicatessennyc.com (not a deli!) for delicious comfort food options as well as great light fare on the best corner for people watching, inside and out.
3)1:30pm: Join us for a SoHo and NoLita Chic Boutiques Shopping Tour so that we can Bring you to those Indie shops worth knowing about
4)4:00pm: Visit MOCA: www.mocanyc.org (museum of Chinese in America) and learn the story of this important immigrant group in a building designed by the famed Maya Lin (also designed the Vietnam Memorial in DC)

SHOPPING GROUPS (the pleasure seekers)
BEHIND-the SCENES: For those who enjoy fashion and shopping, treat them to a rich program of meeting Fashion Designers in their Showrooms, while they enjoy the rare opportunity to shop at Wholesale (50– 70% less than retail), an activity typically reserved for store buyers & magazine editors.  Quintessential “only in NY” experience.

YOUR PERSONAL BROADWAY: For any visiting group that “craves” an upfront thespian experience or just an uber cool “only in NYC” moment, this will surely quench their thirst. In the privacy of their own performance space, a Broadway musical cast member (from a current show) will perform a selection of songs. With plenty of time for questions it’s then on to learning a Song or Dance from the show. Perfect pairing for groups seeing the actual Broadway show

Showroom Shopping in the Garment Center district
