We met with Yukie, the writer behind the SoHo Memory Project, for a coffee this week.
Yukie started her blog in 2011 as a place to write down her memories of growing up in SoHo in the 70s and to collect stories about the neighborhood in the 1960s through early 1980s. Her blog has been a great resource for us already, and it was great to talk to someone who experience SoHo in its glory and grime first hand, but is also just as passionate about archiving the history of New York.
She also gifted us an awesome New York guide book from 1971!
And look what we found inside:
