Once you've crossed Houston Street you have left Greenwich Village and you are officially in Soho (south of Houston).
Top right picture you see the busy traffic on Houston Street and Greenwich Village.
Center right picture is West Broadway in Soho with Houston Street in the far distance. Soho is known primarily for the upscale art galleries that attract an international clientele.
Bottom right picture you see a street vendor selling scarves and hats on the streets of Soho. In nice weather the streets are lined with vendors. Many artists that haven't made it to a gallery will sell their paintings on the sidewalks.
