The world is changing at warp speed as we live through these unprecedented times. The SoHo Memory Project focuses on documenting history and the past. We are, however, presently living through a moment that we understand to be historic as we experience it in real time, a moment that must be documented for posterity.
SoHo Memory Project is creating a SoHo Quarantine Time Capsule, a digital collection that documents SoHo under quarantine. The following are a selection of photographs taken from March 2020 through the present, submitted by community members, for this collection.
Built around 1920 and designed by renowned theater and cinema architect Thomas White Lamb at Prince and Greene Streets, Prince Street Station always seemed too grand a post office for our dirty little neighborhood.
You may have seen Marty around SoHo recently selling lovely bags, jewelry, and hats with his wife. Whereas now Marty's customers must come to him, in the 1970's it was decidedly the other way around when Marty was one of a few seltzer deliverymen (there were no women) who revived the practice of door-to-door seltzer delivery at a time when it had already disappeared into history.
