    SoHo and the Cast Iron District Tour

    Think NYC is just so-so? Get to know SoHo! Today a hip stomping ground offering fashionable boutiques and galleries, SoHo has a long and varied history, during which it has served as an upper class residential neighborhood, a red light district, and a producer of luxury textiles. You'll tour these iconic grounds with an architect or architectural historian, enjoying a detailed look at the buildings and remnants that serve as a visual storytelling device of its rich, 200-hundred year history. Things kick off on Greene Street, where you'll examine the rise of the textile industry in the mid-19th century and how the neighborhood's cast iron architecture played a role in the rise. Then you'll head to Spring Street, where the former studios of luminary artists such as Donald Judd, Philip Glass, and Twyla Tharp still stand, amongst several contemporary galleries and boutiques that today are among the city's most innovative spaces. Arriving at Broadway, you'll end our tour with a look at the department store culture that has been shifting SoHo's economic landscape in recent years, before checking out the famed E.V. Haughwout and Little Singer Buildings, both incredible examples of the neighborhood's cast iron legacy. It should be quite a constructive experience!
