Google Places & LivingFreeNYC Present: The SoHo New Year New You Shopping Spree Contest!

What’s better than strolling down Broadway on a sunny winter day, while shopping at all of your favorite SoHo shops?  Not much! So, when Google New York approached us about giving our readers a chance at a FREE mini shopping spree (valued at $500 USD) at some of the best shops in SoHo, we immediately said yes!  All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is share your opinions about your favorite places in NYC on Google Places, their new personalized local recommendation engine.  Just start an account on Google Places (if you don’t have one already), fill out this form, and start reviewing your favorite places to shop, dine and play in SoHo.  That’s it.  Of course, the more quality reviews you post, the more chances you’ll have to win.


 One (1) lucky New Yorker will win a mini shopping-spree at some of our favorite SoHo shops. Here’s how you can enter to win:

1. Go to and select “Start Rating” (you’ll need to create a Google account if you haven’t already).

3. Review as many NYC places as you like (especially your favorite spots to shop in SoHo!) by 11:59 pm on Saturday, December 31st. Each quality review you write will be judged as a new entry.

4. We’ll go through all the reviews you write during the contest period and give them points. The entrant with the highest number of points will win a mini shopping spree.

5. The winner will be notified via email on or about Tuesday, January 3rd.
