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).
Many people lament the fact that SoHo is no longer a cultural destination, that it has lost its creative soul. I beg to differ. SoHo may no longer be the center of New York’s art and gallery scene, but there is still a vibrant creative community here, though it is sometimes obscured by the more visible retail establishments.
Of all the galleries in SoHo, the two that drew my interest the most, as an eight year old, were Let There Be Neon and the Museum of Holography. Granted, they were not really galleries in the Shafrazzi-Boone-Castelli sense. But galleries they were, nonetheless.
