Saturday shopping in busy Soho
After a few days hiatus it's time for our next subway adventure for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. The Challenge has moved on to "X," but we're still chugging along, albeit with "P." We're off to one of the most fashionable areas in Manhattan, Soho. Soho is the description for the area south of Houston (Street). It goes from Houston Street to Canal Street, where Tribeca -- triangle below Canal (Street) begins. That may be somewhat confusing, so I'm including a portion of the subway map to help out.
P is also for Prada
Soho has some very elegant shopping and I had a great time window shopping during my visit. I especially enjoyed the window at Prada, with the Pop Art and the reflection of the classic Cast Iron building. The ornate facades were characteristic of Soho's grandeur in the later half of the Nineteenth Century. Fortunately many of them have been preserved after a long era when the neighborhood was in decline.
Our next stop is back uptown. We're visiting my favorite subway murals. It's a difficult choice, but this next set have a place in my heart. I discovered them as well, during my subway station visits for the A to Z Challenge. I'm excited to share them with you.
As ever, thanks for visiting and hope you enjoy a bright and sunny spring Friday.
