When did you live in SoHo?


Where did you live in SoHo?

16 Greene St

What was your occupation when you lived in SoHo?

haha I was just a kid

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

the creative energy, the utopian environment that artists and creative people had found a place in this world, the mix of industrial/garment/ factories with the new homesteaders and the unique dynamic that created. the realness.

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

all the fear and uncertainty after Etan disappeared.

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

I grew up! it was time for me to go.

What is your most vivid SoHo memory?

I had a big snowball fight in the winter of 79 with Etan. I was 8, I think he was 7. It was the first time I really got to know him. Two or Three months later he was gone.

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

My father was Gunther Moses. He was a master electrician who wired most of the new lofts that emerged in soho and tribeca in the 70s and 80s. If you ask any old resident if they remember Gunther most likely they will. He helped the artists, and later the squatters in the E.Village gain access to power, even though the city deemed it illegal.
