When you stay at Trump SoHo New York, it’s imperative that you explore all of the surrounding neighborhoods and see the Hudson River up close. Here are the five best things to do near the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel:
1. Go shopping. When you stay at Trump SoHo, you can walk to all the great boutiques the neighborhood is known for. New boutiques are constantly being added. The shops range from Topshop and Uniqlo to Chanel, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang. There’s simply nothing like Soho's fashion district, which puts it at the top of the best attractions near the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel.
2. Catch some live music. Located across the street from the hotel, City Winery hosts artists from all over the world like Bebel Gilberto, Rickie Lee Jones and Aaron Neville, in addition to making their own wine in-house.
3. Stroll along the Hudson River. Amidst towering buildings and brownstones with no yards, you may start to yearn for some scenery that isn’t in the form of concrete. The Hudson River, which you can see from many of the rooms and public spaces from the hotel, offers a wonderful relief. Nearby Hudson River Park is the perfect spot for picnicking, running and playing sports. In the summer, the park hosts free concerts and trapeze acts. Either rent a paddleboat or merely stroll along the esplanade.
4. Go out for a drink. Maybe you love a wine lounge or maybe you favor the no-frills pub with a pool table — Soho and Tribeca have both. Head to Bar 89, known around the neighborhood as the bar with the crazy bathrooms. (Bathroom stalls are translucent until you lock them.) Other nearby watering holes include Balthazar, which is always packed, and the Club Room at Soho Grand, which offers great people-watching.
5. Trump SoHo is also just blocks away from Chinatown and Little Italy, which are right next to each other. In the fall, Little Italy hosts the Feast of San Gennaro, which lasts nine days in mid-September. The fest includes dancing, drinking and lots of great Italian food. If inexpensive shopping and colorful trinkets are what you’re after, head to Chinatown. This vibrant area offers plenty of bargains and yummy dim sum.
