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!
Ben Schonzeit, a pioneer of the Photorealist movement, is well-known for his gripping, hyper-realistic depictions of subjects in vivid color. He is also a prolific collage artist and I also discovered, to my delight, that he is a fellow mail artist! His talents are many, but the purpose of my visit to his studio was to view his photograph collection, specifically his photos of old SoHo.
