      The area situada ao South da Houston Street era apenas um industrial district caracterizado por streets de paralelepípedos. Seus buildings em iron fundido (construidos entre 1840 e 1880) eram ocupados por millionaire factories de tecidos.

Os tetos very high facilitavam a acomodação do industrial equipment, e as giant windows permitiam a entrada da sunlight.

      But a population foi se deslocando uptown, e a industry foi atrás. O South da Houston Street perdeu o glamour.

      In the 60s and the 90s, famous artists resolveram alugar illegally os lofts abandonados. Eles adotaram o name que constava no map de planejamento, e “South Houston” passou a ser carinhosamente conhecido como SoHo.

Many art galleries and restaurants surgiram – e o bairro rapidamente se tornou ‘cool’. Today SoHo é o berço das fashion trends copiadas around the world, and famous artists – like Jon Bon Jovi and Britney Spears – have apartments there.

Quer dar uma volta in Soho? In October next year estaremos there! Enquanto isso mate a vontade accessing http://www.sohonyc.com/history.html , http://traveltips.usatoday.com/history-soho-nyc-21782.html and www.artnyc.com/SoHoHistory.html
