"The Heart of The Village"

- jakesoky
I can spend a night here. In fact, I have. I arrived here at around 7:00 PM, quite a while before the comedy show started at the comedy cellar. A couple of friends and I decided to grab a falafel sand...

Prince St

3.5/5
Ranked 3rd best street in SoHo

3.5/5
Ranked 4th best street in SoHo

Charlton St

3.5/5
Ranked 5th best street in SoHo

"Avoid the corners"

- Cheesewrites
Charlton Street is quiet once you get towards the middle of the block but it intersects with some very heavily trafficked hotspots in the city. If quiet is what you are after Charlton Street is a nice...

Vandam St

3.5/5
Ranked 9th best street in SoHo

"Cute with a lot to do"

Ranked 11th best street in SoHo

"Home of independent theater, an endangered species"

- Uraniumfish
This is probably not the place for a diatribe about how America treats its artists, but I think the fact that two independent theaters have operated here for more than 20 years deserves at least a pas...

Watts St

3/5
Ranked 12th best street in SoHo

"Decent place to live "

King St

3/5
Ranked 13th best street in SoHo

"Commuters delight on King Street "

Ranked 16th best street in SoHo

Unranked Streets

"Busy with a lot of noise"

- JenMac
There's some contention about where West Houston is in Soho and where it's in the Village, but I think it starts at Dos Caminos at Laguardia . . mostly because everyone refers to this Dos as "the one...

6 Ave

2.5/5

"A busy Avenue with little to offer"

Broome St

2.5/5

"Not as crazy as other Soho streets. But, not great."

- JenMac
Broome doesn't really have the cache that other Soho streets like Prince and Spring have, but the good news on that one is that aren't as many people on Broome. The bad news is that there isn't much...

Grand St

1.5/5

"Too packed and dirty"

Grand is a little too far down for my liking. And, the street is packed to the gills all the time and there's trash all over the place. It's just too turn of the century with cars for me. I wouldn'...
