1969 to present
Mercer St 1975 to now)
Parent, teacher, psychiatric nurse psychotherapist
The emptiness, the peace, community, quiet streets except for trucks in businesses, quirkiness, art happenings with people like Meredith Monk, free dance classes with Deborah Hay, Soho Playgroup and closeness of those families
I still live here but regularly escape because of the streets congested with tourists and the feeling of living in a shopping mall
The togetherness of the community of families who formed and ran the Soho Playgroup, mutual support.
I have great nostalgia for the past in Soho and grieve the losses of places like The Bodega, Food, the small Whole Foods that was on Prince St, etc.
