SoHo Photography Prints

Limited Edition Large Format Metal Prints

 

A combination of gorgeous old buildings, cobblesone streets, beautiful window displays, art, and fashion make this a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Or to live...if you have the bucks. Some of New York's wealthiest people have moved into the loft spaces formerly occupied by working artists, and into the newly built condos wedged between historic buildings.

Select from a range of limited edition large format metal prints in sizes up to 45x68" for a show stopping display, or open edition archival paper prints up to 20x30" for an affordable yet dramatic accent suited to smaller spaces. Recommended sizes are noted under each image, with custom sizes available upon request for certain images.

By the mid 19th century, SoHo (acronym for South Of Houston St.) had developed into a neighborhood of shopping and theaters, with an incomparable number of beautiful cast iron and masonry buildings. Eventually, as the growing city continued to spread uptown, the area fell into disregard and became an industrial wasteland of sweatshops and small factories with practically nobody around at night.

Later, in the mid 20th century, artists began to move into SoHo. They desired the large open floorplans and huge windows of the buildings in the area. (continued below...)

SoHo was transformed into a neighborhood of artists' residences/studios known as "lofts", and plenty of art galleries to show their work.

SoHo experienced another transformation that reached full swing in the 1990's and continues to this day. The success of the artists in transforming SoHo into a desireable place to live, work, and shop had an unintended consequence. Rents began to rise astronomically, leading to an exodus of the very artists that were responsible for the improvements. All but the most commercially successful artists were gradually replaced by extremely wealthy newcomers, who were able to pay whatever high rents the landlords were demanding.

The gentrification of the area also brought a flood of large new retailers to the stretch of Broadway from Houston Street to Canal St. Vintage clothing shops and sneaker stores have been replaced by international brand stores such as Top Shop and Hollister.

Broadway in Soho has become one of the city's top shopping destinations for tourists as well as New Yorkers, but it's true that the intense crowds and crush of chain stores is a turn-off for some locals. Thankfully, there are still plenty of side streets in the neighborhood that are uncrowded, with their charm intact.

A combination of gorgeous old buildings, cobblesone streets, beautiful window displays, art, and fashion make this a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Or to live...if you have the bucks. Some of New York's wealthiest people have moved into the loft spaces formerly occupied by mostly artists, and into the newly built condos wedged between historic buildings.

Much of SoHo is now a district protected by city landmark preservation laws, so the number of new developments are limited and it's forbidden to destroy the architectural treasures that make the neighborhood so unique.

It's inconceivable now, but Robert Moses, a powerful 20th century city planner, intended to destroy most of SoHo by building a giant ten lane expressway cutting across the island. Thank goodness his plans were defeated. Community activists, led by Jane Jacobs, gathered to fight against the mammoth expressway. They were determined to save this precious and historic neighborhood, and we owe them our gratitude for its existence today.
