"A bunch of big buildings and people"

Howard only runs through Soho for a block, so there's not really much to say. It's a very commercial block and there are no trees because, apparently, the person that owned the building where the trees were decided he hated them and tore them out some time ago. Howard is busy in the way that most of Soho is so there are people and cars and trash everywhere. It's too loud and busy to want to live on. And, there aren't any restaurants or bars on the street -- and, none that are of any note even in the surrounding area. The buildings are cool, though . . .
The Citibank building on the corner of Howard and Mercer used to be home to Arnold Constable, a massive department store where the likes of Mary Todd Lincoln shopped. All of the buildings on this block are cast-iron, massive buildings built around the mid-19th century. For some bizarre reason, this corner was heavy in the Civil War (i.e. Arnold was boycotted by southerners and the building across the street was a soldier depot during the war.

"Howard Street, NYC"

In the village, for those of you looking to spice up your wardrobe might look into a cool store I found on this street. It’s called Opening Ceremony, and like American Apparel, houses simple mix and match pieces which are great for day and night looks, without breaking the bank. I enjoyed this store and this street, because of its laid back nature, the shopping, and the movement.

This village is best accessed by the followed Metro Stations: 1,2 Houston Street, A,C,E, Spring Street, Prince St N,R,W, Broadway-Lafayette, B,D,F,V, Bleeker St, 4,6 2nd Ave- Lower East Side F,V, Canal St 1, 2, Canal St, A,C,E, ...N, Q R,W,... 4, 6,... J, M, Z, Grand St, B, D Bowery, J, M, Franklin, 1, 2. It is also very well acessible by the bus system!
