From NoHo to SoHo: Getting Out and About

In Manhattan, there have been a few developments in the cultural/ entertainment sphere.  Here – just for fun – we check out one in NoHo and then on to SoHo!

‘By Name’ is a new café and art hub located at 324 Bowery, NoHo. Offering quite different menu items including cheese foam, matcha mousse, a bento box, bubble tea and more, the eatery has already developed an extremely positive reputation, garnering 4.5 Yelp star rating. 

The café’s opening times are: Sunday-Thursday 10.30am-9.30pm and Friday/Saturday 10.30am-10.30pm.

Over in SoHo, Bumble – a mobile dating app – is opening up an all-day café and wine bar.  Food comes from the Charlie Bird team, with its “organic approach [and] curated menu,” and the café will be named Bumble Brew, featuring yellow decorations and hive branding (think bee) at 47 Prince Street, Mulberry Street.

New York High Line Park

In this video – put together by Touristo (a Turkish tourist) – we take a walk on the High Line Elevated Park.   We get to see one of New York’s more popular tourist destinations, learning a little of the history of Gotham, latest art to hit the area, the eateries and stalls at Chelsea Market and of the course the Hudson River Park.

Local Store Openings

There have been a few new store opening recently in the Manhattan region.  One of these is the increasingly popular CBD store.  A play on words (or letters really) Come Back Daily sells Cannabidiol in various forms. These include:  oral, topical, edible, drinks and vapes and can aid in a variety of conditions from pain, sleep, PMS and more.  Brands that are offered include: Moon Mother, Real Scientific Hemp Oil and others.

Come Back Daily already has a presence in Manhattan.  With two storefronts in the neighborhood, its current goal is to make this third one the “Sephora of CBD…bringing CBD-enthusiasts to a one-stop-shop, and encourage their customers to — as its moniker suggests — come back daily.”

It has now been confirmed that Trader Joe’s will be opening a new store in the East Village.  The exact address is 432-438 East 14th Street. 

And then there is the pop-up Fabletics store in SoHo, featuring a small boxing ring for customers to try out the activewear apparel before purchasing. They can select the items, put them in an e-commerce cart and then go into a store to try them on via the OmniShop system.
