The location of many hotels nearby on Broadway fueled a boom in prostitution in the 1850s. In this one block alone, there were 23 brothels. In 1862, Mary Ann Temple was arrested for running a whorehouse in the former Arnoux house.
Today this part of Soho and one of the wealthiest blocks in the city (and the world). It's interesting to see the transformation of this area from wilderness (1644) to brothels (1870) to Apple Store (2002).
