Genis, the creator a the great listing service l-exp, is visiting New York from Spain and asked for any tour suggestions so here is one.
New York can be scene by best foot and subway. One of my favorite paths to Soho is by way of Canal Street. Take the #1 train to Canal Street and Varick, walk west through New York City’s “wholesale to the public” shopping district on Canal. Turn Left(North) on Greene Street and walk up to Broome Street for a cup of coffee at Cafe Cafe. Then head towards Spring Street where you will find yourself in the heart of Soho where you can meander, shop, eat, and people watch all afternoon.
