Historic cast-iron architecture. Charming cobblestone streets. Darling bakeries & cafes on basically ever corner. These are just a few of the many things I adore about the quaint neighborhoods of SoHo & Nolita. To me, these two areas are some of New York’s finest. And cutest. From chowing down at unique [and delicious] brunch spots, to marveling at all the local art lining the streets, these neighborhoods give off such a vibe that will keep your excitement and curiosity thriving. But enough of me yapping away. Check out this city guide for yourself!
