Living in SoHo makes it easy for you to visit some of New York’s best restaurants and shops. For some people though, it’s more about bumping into celebrities. If you purchase a place in SoHo, there is a good chance that you will spot at least one or two of these celebrities.
Daniel Craig, the latest and most intimidating version of James Bond, was born in Chester, England, but today he calls SoHo home (actually, he probably has several places to call home considering that he was paid about $52 million for his role in “Skyfall”).
Those who live in SoHo might catch sight of him jogging, running errands, or going to one of the area’s finer restaurants. He also seems like the kind of guy who enjoys chowing down on a basic meal of hamburgers and fries, so residents should keep their eyes open even when they stop by the neighborhood diner.

Jon Bon Jovi

Everyone knows that Jon Bon Jovi comes from New Jersey. If you’re a talented musician who has written some of rock’s most powerful ballads though, you need a place to stay when visiting New York City.
Plus, Jon gets occasional acting gigs, so he needs a home base where he can easily talk to his manager and meet other actors. Subsequently, SoHo is the perfect place to live for this down-to-earth guy. With some luck, you might catch Jon, his wife, and their four kids walking around the neighborhood like it’s not a big deal.

Dakota Fanning, the Georgia-born actor who can’t even buy a legal drink until February 2015, has been spotted around the SoHo area enough times that locals accept her as one of their own.
Fanning has a more successful career than most popular actors in New York. She got one of her first gigs on “ER” in 2000. She has since gone on to perform in scores of TV shows and movies, and today most people know Fanning from “The Twilight Saga,” but her work transcends the genre. Today, her IMDB profile lists more than 50 acting credits to her name.
SoHo residents with a lot of luck might see Dakota Fanning walking down the sidewalk with her younger sister Elle, who is building her own impressive resume.

Considering that Justin Timberlake has hosted “Saturday Night Live” five times, it’s a good thing he has a place in New York City. One of his generation’s most recognizable musician-actors, Timberlake knows how to command an audience while staying approachable (maybe it has something to do with that whole “[Blank] in a Box” song he performed with Andy Samberg). That kind of personality makes him an asset to the SoHo area.
Don’t forget that Justin Timberlake is married to Jessica Beal. They have to be one of the hottest couples in Manhattan. Imagine spotting those two on your way to the subway station. It seems like a pretty good way to start the day.
If you already live in SoHo, you probably know about other celebrities who live in the area. Whom do you spot regularly? Do you feel like they make the neighborhood a better place to live?
