About

The SoHo Memory Project celebrates the history of SoHo as a New York City neighborhood.

Our mission:

  • Document the evolution of the area that is now called “SoHo” from colonial days through the present, with a focus on the decades between 1960 -1980 when it was a vibrant artists’ community.
  • Preserve SoHo’s past so that present generations understand our neighborhood’s rich history and are informed as we shape its future.

The SoHo Memory Project is a 501c3 nonprofit.

 

Yukie Ohta (Founder) is an archivist, collage artist, and SoHo native. She still lives on Mercer Street, in the building where she formed her earliest SoHo memories. To read articles by Yukie about SoHo and New York City click here.

    My Dad worked for many garment factories. A number at 596 Broadway. He would be amazed now. I tried to sign up for blog but it said it was expired. Would like to be a part of this. Personally worked at 90 Prince.
