The ACE Shopping Guide Has Arrived!


Ever found yourself downtown, desperate for a good bite to eat or in serious need of some retail therapy?

Never fear, the latest edition of the free ACE Shopping Guide is here! Whether you’re a tourist or a NYC native, these unique, must-have maps are perfect for navigating the best stores, galleries, eateries and hotels that SoHo and Nolita have to offer. Proceeds from the Guide’s ad sales go to benefit our Project Comeback and Project Stay programs, so you can shop and support ACE at the same time.  We’d like to thank all of the businesses that participated and if your store or restaurant missed out, send us an e-mail.

ACE Community ambassadors will be distributing the Guide at various corners throughout Soho and Nolita; keep an eye out for those folks in the bright red windbreakers! You can also look for the Guide at the following locations and if you don’t see it, tell the manager to contact ACE for distribution details:
