Growing Up SoHo

If you grew up in SoHo in the 1970s and 80s, your childhood, looking back, was no doubt unique. Back then, though, we thought everyone grew up like us---riding bikes in the house, running under parked tractor trailers, going to loft parties late into the night. Helicopter parenting wasn’t a thing back then, and we were free to roam the empty SoHo streets doing as we pleased as long as we were home for dinner.
