When did you live in SoHo?


Where did you live in SoHo?

Front door on bway, back door on mercer, between Broome and grand

What was your occupation when you lived in SoHo?


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

the quiet in the middle of Manhattan, all the factory scraps for projects

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

the hike to grand union; unlocking my door with one foot jammed to keep the elevator door from closing on me, while a packed crowd of sweat shop workers waited behind me in the elevator and I occasionally fumbled my keys and dropped them down the elevator shaft; rats in the tub

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

grew up and couldn't afford it.. Anyway it was no longer the same I moved to williamsburg, which had some of the spirit in the 90s

What is your most vivid SoHo memory?

playing in the parking lot on grand street, waiting for the school bus at 6th ave and grand and getting hot choice from the diner there on cold days, riding bikes on the old west side highway
