You should really make two trips to the Village: once during the day to see the sights, and ‘a second time at night to get a feel for the atmosphere, have dinner and listen to some jazz or folk music.
SoHo, short for South of Houston, is the area to the south of West Houston Street (generally regarded as the southern limit of the Village). After a long period as an abandoned industrial district, SoHo has become quite chic. Artists who can no longer afford the rents in the Village have resettled here, taking over lofts or warehouse floors. The wealthier ones have installed kitchens and bathrooms and hired the best interior decorators to do their apartments. The homes of the poorest have remained warehouses with no modern conveniences, but plenty of space and light. No one has curtains, so in the evenings you can look in through the enormous lighted windows and see what the interiors are like. The main street of SoHo. West Broadway, has all the avant-garde galleries. The four best known are located at No. 420, where they show both unknown artists and established 52 stars like Andy Warhol, Robert.
