The first settlers in Soho cultivated farmland. Things have changed dramatically! Located South of Houston St. (Hence the name SoHo ). The local government filled in the neighborhood's canal (aptly named Canal Street), and started the first major transition for the area. In 1825 Soho was one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Manhattan.

Soho was named the "Cast Iron Historic District" in 1973. This would preserve the integrity of the architectural style for generations to come. Cobblestone streets and Cast Iron designed warehouses gave way to the bohemian artists of the 70´s Soho is considered by many to be one of the hippest places on the map.
