SoHo

Manhattan , NY

SoHo (South of Houston) is known for its beautiful cast-iron buildings. A majority of the of cast-iron fronted building date from the 1870s, though a substantial number of complete masonry structures, as well as those combining masonry and cast iron, date from earlier and later decades.

The earliest extant buildings within the SoHo Cast Iron Historic District date back to the first decade of the 19th century when the area was exclusively residential. By mid-century, most of the early houses had either been replaced or converted for commercial purposes, though there remains today over thirty identifiable Federal period buildings within the District boundaries. They are far outnumbered, however, by non-residential structures dating from every decade of the second half of the 19th century plus a few belonging to the 20th. The neighborhood today is a mix of residential artists loft apartments and commercial buildings.
