A Day Around the SoHo
At the South of the Houston street this beautiful neighbourhood is located. It´s characterised for having an old structure as regards the cast iron architecture and the cobblestone streets between the most luxuries shops in the world. I think that this contrast is what makes it interesting. You have a beautiful manmade antique landscape and the latest fashion trends all together. Ideal!
There´s always something that makes me want to visits this landmark and it´s only because of the food. It´s a must see place. Particularly, I like going to the "not so typical places" and even if the SOHO it´s a recommended place for tourists I never happen to see them! Just promise me that if you visit Manhattan take a taxi and visit the place. If I´m not wrong a cab will cost you less than $20.
There are only a couple of streets to wonder around, but the principal one is Broadway street (the one that goes around the city). High street stores (HM, Zara, Topshop, Victoria´s Secret) meet the most exclusive boutiques one again.
But the magic is in the gastronomy. This year I decided to give a try to one of the most popular brunch spots in Manhattan, Jack´s Wife Freda (Lafayette 224, and Spring St) where I had my first waffle ever. It was amazing for a first time. I totally get it why it´s labelled as one the top 10 brunch bar. But the place I was looking forward to visit was Georgetown Cupcakes on 111 Mercer St(DC cupcakes for the TV fans), also known as the best cupcakes on earth! This cupcakes are to die for! I had a coconut one, my all time favourite!
In other news, it started to snow! It was no news actually. All the media was crazy with this anomaly and luckily I paid attention and use it as the perfect excuse to flash my new Hunter boots. In case you haven´t noticed I´m crazy about them. It was freezing but absolutely worth it! It´s a memory I´ll cherish forever!
I talked about the shops, the landscape, the out of this world food, and even a little geography, now you can´t hesitate anymore, when in New York visit the SoHo.
