When did you live in SoHo?


Where did you live in SoHo?

169 Mercer street, second floor.

What was your occupation when you lived in SoHo?

I was a film editor, still am.

What do you miss most about SoHo in the 1970s?

SoHo was quiet at nights and on the weekends, except for the firehouse down the street, when the trucks would go against traffic on Mercer, up to Houston. There was also a sense of community that was lost once the discos started moving in.

What do you miss least about SoHo in the 1970s?

The grime, the industrial noise during the day could get irritating.

If you no longer live in SoHo, why did you leave?

I left for greener pastures in Los Angeles.

What is your most vivid SoHo memory?

Many vivid memories, but I think the interior of the raw and semi finished lofts were intense.

Is there anything else you would like to add to your profile?

I would love to be able to add photos.
