Although you may want to dismiss Soho as an overcrowded, overpriced outdoor shopping mall, there are still places where you can see a glimpse of the neighborhood's rawer, artier past. Street art abounds and there are some intriguing galleries. Meanwhile, Little Italy to the east offers incredible eats and small playgrounds, while Hudson Square to the west boasts two major kid destinations, the Children's Museum of the Arts and the New York City Fire Museum, plus access to Hudson River Park.
Our Soho Family Guide highlights the very best places to eat, shop and experience with kids in the neighborhood. We hope you enjoy getting to know the area with your family.
