Join us as we explore the history surrounding Soho and Nolita. Soho was once an industrial center in the 19th Century. Once all of the businesses vacated to Midtown after World War II, Soho was a barren wasteland. Artists like Frank Stella, Chuck Close, and Donald Judd started to move into the newly created "lofts" in the 1960's, where artists could live and work on the cheap.

Soho became the focal point of the art world during the 1970's, with many of the most famous galleries, including the Leo Castelli Gallery headquartered there. Soho is now a major center for fashion. It also boasts the largest concentration of Cast Iron structures in the entire world, over 250.

Nolita is now one of the most fun neighborhoods in New York. It stands for "North of Little Italy" and was once part of Little Italy. It is now the center for boutique shopping and quaint cafes.
