Girls and Boys on Film

1971-05-Lembeck-Crista-01-loI just looked over my past few posts, and boy oh boy are they serious!  So I thought today we could do something fun.  I’ve uploaded a bunch of photos of SoHo kids (and some grownups) and I thought you all could write in either:

1) identifying the people and/or  location in the photo

2) sharing what memories the photo evokes about old SoHo

These are photos that readers have sent in over the years, and they are not in any special order.  Please leave comments via the comments window at the bottom of this post, and don’t forget to include the photo number so that we know which photo you are describing.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

PS Please feel free to send me more snapshots at sohomemory@gmail.com and I will post them here!

    #6 totally brings back that seminal playgroup to me. What a gang!

    Picture 14 of two little boys from the back looking through the cyclone fence are Jay Nanda (left) and Michael Eder.

  4. nancyeder Says:

    The fenced area the boys are looking at is was the baseball field and big playground area where Coles gym is. . . Soon Coles, too, will be history.

  5. Georgia Says:

    Yukie, this is a great collection.

    May I feature, with credit, image 32 of the former mounds in Washington Square Park on the localecologist blog?

    Thank you.

    Of course! Please credit The SoHo Memory Project. Thanks.

    Thank you for posting this link Yukie. I’m really enjoying the collective images you have complied here. I feel so honored to be apart of this blog and our community of old friends and neighbors. I’m hoping to come there this spring and would love to see you!

    #8 Becky Yee @9 o’clock position wearing red, next to her with the big smile (if my bad memory serves me right), “Jenny Pearl of a Girl” and the boy on right standing went by the name, “Chris the Cowboy.”

  10. Barney Says:

    #9 Becky Yee and Vanessa Yee with Earth in front of their 152 Wooster Street loft. In background is artist John C. Kacere’s Mercedes (why do I remember that??? 🙂

    • Yukie Ohta Says:

      Hi Barney- Thanks for writing in. I only found your comments today, lost in the mounds of spam. I don’t remember the Mercedes- thanks for including that!
