Sean Sweeney, Director of the SoHo Alliance, recently shared his fabulous collection of postcards from SoHo restaurants with me (he is an avid postcard collector). Some of the restaurants are long gone, some recently gone, some still hanging on. I thought this would be a great way to close out the year. Tune in next month for a deeper dive into some of our favorite eateries. Cheers, bon appétit, and see you in 2019!
Ever since I put out a call for SoHo photos, I've received all kinds of images, of people, places, events from the 1970s through the present. I've included a selection below, the beginning of what I hope turns into a much larger collection that encompasses as many SoHo stories as possible.
Jody Saslow's film "Crosby Street" is a beautiful portrayal of everyday life on Crosby Street in 1975 that profiles workers and residents alike at a time when gentrification was just peeking its head around the corner.
