Most of SoHo (the area South of Houston street) is part of the landmarked Cast Iron Historic District, a preserve of ornate cast iron facades and cobble stone streets formerly home to 19th & 20th century light manufacturing. When artists moved in during the 1970s, SoHo quickly achieved the "hip" status and prices for the oversized loft spaces started to rise. Though some apartments still house artists, photographers and designers who often use it as their studio, these days celebrities, models and the occasional banker have taken over. Soho is famous for its endless array of pricey boutiques and charming atmosphere. Away from the masses on Broadway and Spring street, Soho’s picturesque streets become quieter. The youthful crowd returns at night with a bar scene that is generally laid back and casual.
