FAL64CON – SoHo – New York

This is New York too ! Some upper-class guy, driving his old-timer through SoHo, New York !

SoHo is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan. Originally associated with the arts, it has since become famous for both destination shopping and its downtown scene. It is an archetypal example of inner-city regeneration and gentrification, encompassing socio-economic, cultural, political and architectural developments.

The name is a blend of “South” and “Houston” from “south of Houston Street”, and has no relation to the Soho area of London, England. The name originated in 1968 when artists and activists were forming an organization to legalize their living in a manufacturing zone. Seeking to geographically identify their group, they consulted a Department of City Planning map that described the area as ‘So. Houston’. The group voted to call itself the SoHo Artists Association, and the name stuck.

It is also known as the Cast-Iron Historic District because of the many buildings incorporating cast iron architectural elements.
