Hi all.  Just a quick note to let you know that this summer I will be starting a Guest Post Series.  I have asked a few SoHo old-timers to write a post for The SoHo Memory Project describing their experiences living and/or working in SoHo in the 1970’s.  This series will bring welcome points of view other than my own to this blog, and I invite you all to submit ideas you might have for a post to  I am hoping that with the addition of guest posts, the blog will begin to reflect a true COLLECTIVE MEMORY, rather than my own singular one.  The first post in this series will go up this Saturday, so please stay tuned!

P.S.
