  1. Heads Up! « The SoHo Memory Project Says:

    […] YOUR SOHO PROFILE If you are a SoHo old timer, please fill out this questionnaire and I will add your SoHo Memory Profile to our archive. […]

  2. Aristides Pappidas Says:

    Since I moved into “Soho” in 1962 my understanding of your criteria is that I am disqualified from being an ‘old timer’. But in the spirit of America couldn’t we compromise? Which would lead to your creating a spot for Grandparents of Old Timers (GOT!)! I’m using Listerine as a mouth wash these days so cannot say I await your response with baited breath. Yours truly in [potentially] relative antiquity, Aristides.

      Hi! Arisitides, what i remember of your loft was that sweet fox that sang.He didn’t bark, he made melodious sounds in his joy to see you.

  3. Yukie Says:

    My parameters are only general guidelines and are always VERY flexible. Someone who moved to SoHo in 2001 probably would not have much to say about living in the old SoHo but OF COURSE you qualify—you lived there throughout the duration of the period about which I am writing regardless of when you moved in!!! And to those of you who do not fall exactly within the time or geographic borders of this project but have a memory to share, I would wholeheartedly welcome your submission. I strive to be ultra-inclusive, but also on topic.

    In the area since 1971, loved how it use to be, always thinking about it the good old grimey days.

    Working up a new edition of my book from a decade ago, THE RISE AND FALL OF ARTISTS’ SOHO, I would appreciate corrections and additions please from those who have already read the book. If you send anything,let me know if I can quote. For new reproductions I’m interested less in photographs than documents. Thanks.

  7. Ann Stokes Szabo (now Neff) Says:

    I lived at 28 Greene St in the 4th floor rear from 1972 until 1993. Actually moved my stuff out four years later. I frequented the Broome St bar, and Berry’s and many other wonderful establishments.

    I visited the Soho Memory Project earlier this week with the Newark Museum. It was wonderful to see the history of this unique area and how it’s developed into what it is like today. I started going to Soho in 1981 and it certainly has changed since then. Kudos to Yukie for documenting the history in such a creative way.

  10. Susanna Cuyler Says:

    Memorable was Michael Goldstein’s poster for SohoWeekly News:
    “Not Just Another Voice.”

  11. LJ Says:

    I was born and raised in on Spring between Greene and Wooster. Here is some of what I remember: summer days at the Thompson Street Playground, running through the sprinklers, begging for five more minutes of play, being bribed to leave with a veggie sicilian slice from Ben’s followed by a creamsicle ice; my dad running me in a sled down Spring Street from 6th Ave to Lafayette during the 1996 blizzard; standing with Harry as he sold books outside of the loft, meeting a vast variety of characters; going to the Angelica when my sister got her first job there and being lifted up to press the butter nozzle down and drench patron’s popcorn; the countless trips down to the deli on the corner of Spring and Greene, and the owners who watched me grow up; the cobblestone streets that I quickly learned are not ideal for rollerblading; the neighborhood kids, the fire escapes, and rooftops – I could go on forever. RIP to the shopping mall that was once a beloved neighborhood.

  12. Joan Carra Says:

    So excited, I worked at Supernova and was “the baby sitter of SOHO” and have interesting stories will write it up soon
    and send.
