"Too packed and dirty"

Grand is a little too far down for my liking. And, the street is packed to the gills all the time and there's trash all over the place. It's just too turn of the century with cars for me. I wouldn't want to live here, but I wouldn't want to live in Soho, in general. Just too many people and down around Grand is kind of sketchy at night.
Grand at 6th has a bunch of little restaurants on the block but none are particularly noteworthy. The Moonstruck Diner used to be on this block. Mary Jane from Superman and Monica in Friends both worked here on celluloid and the writer of rent worked there in real life. It had been open since the '30's and closed, sadly, a few years ago. I have no idea what's there now but it's such a shame that the place was driven out of the neighborhood. The block around West Broadway is a mix of giant, cast-iron buildings and little bistros and delis. I don't really hang around Grand all that much because I think it's a little loud, dirty and far south, but these buildings are cool and the restaurants seem very quaint.
Once you get around to the Greene and Mercer part of Grand, the Soho effect starts to settle in though not as much as areas around Prince and Spring. There are some great cast iron buildings from the late 19th century and a lot of the street level businesses are high level boutiques like Yohji Yamamoto and Ingo Maurer.
The buildings are gorgeous on Grand but the southern part of Soho just isn't up to speed with development. It's also insanely crowded on Grand and doesn't have any green like Prince and Spring do. It's a high traffic area and it's really loud and dirty around here. Plus, the shopping isn't up to par with other streets in the neighborhood.
