I grew up on Crosby Street between Prince and Spring and then Mercer Street between Houston and Prince. These two blocks have appeared repeatedly on album covers, in movies, and in print. What makes them so appealing to photographers and film makers? Or is it that every block in SoHo appears repeatedly in the media so I could have picked any two blocks at random?
My memories of SoHo in the 70's are not shot in digital video, or even 35 mm, but rather in shaky super-8. But as my reminiscences of childhood advance into adolescence, at some point, my memories of SoHo loose their drab, almost monochrome quality and take on the vibrant colors of the land of Oz.
