Where did you live in SoHo?

I was an Art Therapy student at NYU and worked at AD-HOC Software on corner of Spring .

What was your occupation when you lived in SoHo?

I was mostly studying art therapy and finding random street artist to do art work with me. Graffiti and anything they’d do . I was salesperson but loved how the owners would give designers a chance to sell among their high end merchandise!

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

It was a great people watching there. Isabella Rossellini and a variety of people would be out and about . Louise Nevelson and other artist shopped around and have drinks in bars without being bothered . The creative energy and mix of people was contagious.

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


Nothing except for the drug use was escalating during that time and it was sad to see someone suffering.

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

Moved south to start Art Therapy practice in South Carolina .

What is your most vivid SoHo memory?

Seeing Basquait spray painting on a door.

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

It’s feels super touristy when I go back and the atmosphere is less laid back and more pretentious than old days.
