New York, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
Savvy New York residents and visitors alike with a fondness for dining and shopping in SoHo can access deals and discounts from some of the neighborhoods’ most internationally famous brands by downloading ACE New York’s SoHo Shopping Guide right to their phone.
The SoHo Shopping Guide has everything you need to navigate downtown NYC neighborhoods, including a detailed map with GPS, recommendations to the best shops, restaurants, hotels and spas, local deals and special promotions.
Complimenting ACE’s traditional printed map available at hotels and shops throughout New York City, the SoHo Shopping Guide app allows users a more intimate experience – displaying real time positioning and allowing businesses to highlight exclusive deals and attractions.
“SoHo is our neighborhood. It’s where ACE started. Our program participants literally sweep these streets every single day,” said Jim Martin, Executive Director of ACE. “These businesses are our neighbors and our supporters and we’re proud of these partnerships. For 20 years SoHo businesses have funded ACE’s programs for NYC’s recovering homeless men and women. With our app, shoppers and diners in SoHo can join local businesses in their support of ACE programs.”
ACE (Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless) was founded in 1992 by SoHo resident Henry Buhl. ACE works with homeless men and women throughout New York City providing job training, work experience, housing opportunities and a lifetime support network to help participants achieve their goals and establish economic independence. ACE is funded primarily through private donations. For more information about ACE and/or to make a donation, go to http://www.acenewyork.org.
