Today marks ten years to the day that I founded SoHo Memory Project on January 1, 2011. Many of you have been with me since day one and many, many others joined us along the way. What began as a blog I thought only my mom would read has turned into a nonprofit organization with an archive that has been promised to the New York Historical Society. Together we built our collective memory of SoHo, past and present, grit and glory, from scratch.
Many people lament the fact that SoHo is no longer a cultural destination, that it has lost its creative soul. I beg to differ. SoHo may no longer be the center of New York’s art and gallery scene, but there is still a vibrant creative community here, though it is sometimes obscured by the more visible retail establishments.
