Street style/fashion shoot with Aliona @aliona.photography More cool pics in the same outfit as in the last post :)
The name Soho means "South of Houston street". I love this neighborhood, although it's way too touristy. But if you come here at 7 am you might catch it empty enough for great photos :)) Cast-iron fire escapes, industrial facades, cobblestone streets - a perfect scenery for street style pictures. Location of many artists' lofts and art galleries, variety of shops ranging from trendy upscale boutiques to chain store outlets along Mercer st, Greene st and others. A lot of art galleries. Great restaurants. Here are some of my favorites: Cafe Select for lunch, trendy cozy place full of models and bloggers , great food, rosti buratta and a cappuccino my usual choice ;) Sant Ambroes has a more upscale scene with businessmen, but still young crowd. I like Nomo kitchen for dinner on a weekend night. Beautifully designed, with an open roof.

Financial District is so different from the rest of NYC. It lives on the weekdays. Finance men leave offices by 6pm and the neighborhood turns almost into a movie set, dark tight streets of Gotham City. Very quite, pretty streets that weave around high rise buildings, everything you see in the movies. Just to name a few, Spider Man, Money man featuring George Clooney, as well as Wolf of Wall Street. I don't go there often. It is not very close to my place, and more importantly, the area lacks great dining options, which is a huge disadvantage since i'm a big foodie.
The bustling life of men in pursuit of their dreams, with skyscrapers reaching for the stars, perfectly suits a photo shoot. It creates perfect scenery. Especially street style. Although I seldom go down to FiDi, I have found interesting places to recommend. First, I can eat and watch movies at the same time in the best movie theater in NYC, called iPic. Two of my favorite things combined! Not to mention, the food is being served from the restaurant "The Tuck Room", which has great food, pretty interior design, spacious bar and delicious food.
Seaport, the historically protected neighborhood recently went through heavy make over after Sandy storm. They did a great job, which brought the neighborhood back in a new updated entertainment, while also preserving the authenticity and history of the Seaport. Cute little shops around Fulton and Front street give you the vibes of Europe. A must visit place is "Blacktail" bar. A quick travel to Cuba is guaranteed. Their cocktails are amazing! That is what I call my perfect day in this neighborhood. Movies, dinner, stroll and a cocktail bar. And a quick shoot!
Never been to this park before, it's beautiful! Looks exactly like High Line park in Chelsea. It's on Water street, right by the river.
