The other day, I was going through issues of The SoHo Weekly News for a research request and I came across the very first issue, Volume One Number One from October 11, 1973. I thought it merited a closer look, that it could tell us something about what our neighborhood looked like 44 years ago and also give us a glimpse of what the startup newspaper and its editor, Micheal Goldstein, had in mind at the very beginning.
Every once in a while, I like to dip into our SoHo Stories folder to gather and share some of the wonderful memories of old SoHo readers have submitted to The SoHo Memory Project (to share your SoHo story, click on the "Share Your SoHo Stories" link above).
