The Best Weekend in West SoHo


The Best Weekend in West SoHo

Streets that look like stills from a movie. Restaurants on every corner. More boutique shops than you could ever imagine. And nightlife to suit everyone’s taste. When you live in West Soho, you’re living in one of the most culture-and-cuisine-rich neighborhoods Manhattan has to offer. Things just get better when you’re at the center of it all, living in the luxe homes at 70 Charlton. Here, you’ll find dreamy digs that meld old-school Downtown style with world-class amenities, such as an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and lush courtyards — located in the heart of lower Manhattan between the West Village and Tribeca.

 You could spend a perfectly pleasant weekend simply relaxing by yourself in one of these well-appointed apartments in Soho New York. But why not spread the wealth and invite your friends and family over, both to see your beautiful new home and to explore this diverse and exciting neighborhood? With so many things to do and see here, the weekend will plan itself.

 Start your morning with a stroll down the cobblestone streets and take in the area’s history while admiring the cast-iron facades. Grab a latte at About Coffee. Then, take your loved ones to some of the best shops in the world. You can stock up on Alexander Wang, Anna Sui, or go on a spree at nearby Bloomingdale’s. They’re all within a five-minute walk from your home.

 After shopping, you and your gang are sure to be hungry. Never fear, you’re at the epicenter of the city’s culinary scene. Stop by Balthazar for steak frites and a glass of merlot, or visit the trendy Charlie Bird and feast on mouthwatering authentic Italian fare. Pro tip: Try the gnocchi rosa — a near ambrosial dish comprising pillows of potato pasta bathed in a rich tomato sauce — sure to be a meal your guests will remember for a long, long time.

 There’s no better way to catch up with friends than to have a chat over a nice bottle of rosé or syrah at City Winery, where you’ll find a buzzy yet intimate space during the day and a cabaret-style music venue at night. (Le) Poisson Rouge is an option for those with a penchant for the performing arts. This space is dedicated to “art and alcohol.” Impressing your friends with your excellent taste in underground music, dance, and theater, while libating liberally, is an excellent way to end the evening (or begin it, depending on your inclination).

 And to burn off all of that delicious food and drink, a stroll along the Hudson River to take in the view from Pier 45 — just a few blocks away from home at 70 Charlton — is requisite.
