SOHO. At first glance it’s loud and touristy, but the best of SoHo can be found on the second and third floors of its buildings, or in windows that appear to be empty or dull. These “hidden” spaces hold the history of a neighborhood that was home to the most influential personalities of New York’s conceptual art scene of the 60s and 70s. SoHo was the city’s epicenter of culture and art during those decades: Fluxus cooperatives and artists like Philip Glass, Chuck Close, Donald Judd and Frank Stella, among others, lived here. Towards the end of the 70s DIA Art Foundation and Artists Space opened their main headquarters in SoHo.
