SoHo and Greenwich Village

During a good portion of our time in New York we crisscrossed the city shopping in several different neighborhoods, visiting different sights, eating some great food, and then often doubling back to return to a place we had already visited. The majority of the time we spent in SoHo, Greenwich Village, the Meatpacking District, and Chelsea.

In this post I want to talk about my adventures in SoHo and Greenwich Village.

These are a uniquely New York neighborhoods – with tree-lined streets and beautiful old buildings. And it's a great part of the city to walk around in – and a great place to shop.

On this trip we went back to some of my favorite shops and found some new ones too! My favorite new shops are Rosebud and Makié in SoHo. The first, Rosebud, sells women's clothing and accessories imported from Israel. This shop has very pretty things at reasonable prices. A few doors down, Makié sell adorable clothing and accessories for children and whimsical accessories and clothing items for women. All items are designed and made at the shop.

Walking along Bleaker Street in Greenwich Village I came to a door that led down into a small shop. On a simple wooden sign had two simple words – Pure Dark. A new chocolate shop! Pure Dark sells simple and delicious handcrafted chocolate slabs and confections. The slabs are delicious!

SoHo and Greenwich village have an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, and people. It is a place that is fun to explore! It remains one of my favorite shopping – and eating – areas of New York City!
