 As the new condo buildings rise in SoHo, the historical perspective as to how we got here fades. Few of the swells dropping seven and even eight figure checks on the table for their new digs have much knowledge about why SoHo really is SoHo. Yes, they might know that the acronym stands for south of Houston Street, and that Warhol and Castelli were on West Broadway around the same time in the 70's, but what about the raw lofts, fixture fees and guerrilla art?


 The sparse SoHo street art exhibits are more low-key now. Fewer artists exhibit their work than in the eighties and nineties when residents were up in arms over the crowded sidewalks.
