Soho, that entertaining London neighborhood bordered by Oxford Street, Regent Street, Charing Cross Road and Leicester Square, is rapidly changing its reputation from scarlet to chic. Streets once lined with peep shows and strip joints are increasingly inhabited by intriguing clothing boutiques, specialty shops and fashionable bistros patronized by sophisticated Londoners, including film makers and theater people who work in the district, on Wardour Street and Shaftesbury Avenue, respectively.

When it comes to doing business in China, Hollywood is well acquainted with the perils of piracy. Now it appears that architects must also be wary of unlicensed copying while in that country. Architect Zaha Hadid is reportedly dealing with a pirated design being built in the inland city of Chongqing. The copied structure may be completed before the original in the Beijing area is finished, according to Germany's Der Spiegel.  Hadid designed the Wangjing Soho, scheduled to be completed in 2014, according to the London architect's official website.

In his sweetly ominous "After Hours" (selected theaters), director Martin Scorsese catalogues our fears. Social fears of seeming wimpy and being dateless and alone for ever . Nice sensible urban fears of dark lonely city streets, of muggers, predators and the New York subway system at a late hour. Then he shuffles them and deals a personal-size comedy, so relentlessly exact that it's hilarious.

NEW YORK - Anton Chekhov is always with us in the theater. But this summer his work has been especially prevalent, serving as an inspirational model for such contemporary playwrights as Tracy Letts, Andrew Upton and Annie Baker. Having recently returned from a stifling hot busman's holiday in New York where I saw two productions of "Uncle Vanya," the Baker adaptation at Soho Rep and the Upton adaptation courtesy of the Sydney Theatre Company at the Lincoln Center Festival starring Cate Blanchett, I can't help pondering the meaning of this Chekhovian preponderance.

Husband-and-wife designers Eric Martin and Diane Moss-Martin, co-founders of moody Los Angeles-based brand MartinMartin, chose a blinding white color palette for their first-ever boutique — an optically striking choice, considering that their collections are almost wholly all-black looks. The lofty space is about as minimal as it gets, echoing the label's pared-down aesthetics. The white walls are roughly 18 feet high, backdropping unembellished wall shelves and a dramatic, industrial-style clothing rack that runs from floor to ceiling down the length of the store's interior.

What could be more natural for an emigre writer than to find things in his adopted country strange to the point of surrealism? And what could be more natural, if the writer is Russian, to call on his native literature's rich traditions of the surrealistic, the comic and the piercingly sad? Zinovy Zinik, like most of the narrators of these five stories, is a Russian Jew who lives in London.

Since the release of the May 21 issue of Time magazine - the one with an attractive if rather indignant-looking young motherbreast-feeding a nearly 4-year-old child on the cover - much of the country has been abuzz with both admiration and condemnation of the child-rearing philosophy called "attachment parenting. " Known for its hyper-protectiveness, not to mention its plain-old hype, attachment parenting concerns itself with issues like the benefits of home schooling, the value of "co-sleeping" and whether disposable diapers and store-bought baby food are instruments of neglect.

NEW YORK - A New Jersey man who was a teenage store clerk when 6-year-old Etan Patz vanished 33 years ago Friday told police he lured the boy into the store with promises of a soda, strangled him, then dumped the body into an alley - a dramatic confession that could solve one of the country's most chilling missing-child mysteries. New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, speaking at a news conference Thursday night, said Pedro Hernandez, 51, of Maple Shade, N.J., had spoken to investigators for more than three hours, that his confession had been videotaped, and that Hernandez had told people over the years that he'd been involved in a horrible crime.

Police and FBI agents Thursday were pursuing a possible new lead in the disappearance of Etan Patz, the little boy whose disappearance from a Manhattan street more than 30 years ago ushered in the use of milk cartons to publicize the plight of missing children and left the nation with one of its most haunting mysteries. New York police spokesman Paul Browne confirmed that officials planned to dig at a site in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood, near where Etan was last seen on May 25, 1979.

Donald Trump is so annoying that it's extra annoying when he gets something right. Nonetheless, here's what Hotel Chatter had to say about the 46-story Trump SoHo New York when it opened two years ago: "Undeniably Trump but the spacious rooms, Fendi furniture, Hudson River views and giant soaking tubs have won us over. " Now Trump SoHo at 246 Spring St. has a one-day sale that discounts the pricey room rates and throws in a few cocktails too. You have to stay two nights, but with those views, who wouldn't want to?

The 2009 launch of the Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony collection introduced the nostalgic wool brand to the fashion crowd and inspired the creation of this season's Portland Collection. Boutique retailer Opening Ceremony, with locations in Soho, Los Angeles and Tokyo, has collaborated with dozens of brands since opening its doors in 2002. It launched its own Opening Ceremony collection, which is also sold in stores such as Barneys New York and Saks. Co-founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have become such influential tastemakers that in July they were named the new creative directors for the Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned French fashion label Kenzo.
