SOHO: The Essential Guide to Art and Life in Lower Manhattan

Simon and Schuster, 1979

Authors: Alexandra Anderson and B.J. Archer

This guide gives a very useful overview of the galleries, alternative spaces and museums in the SoHo area of New York. In addition, it presents the other spaces and activities (restaurants, clubs, theaters, retailers, etc.) in SoHo that contribute to a more complete feel of what it was like to be there in the early to late 70s.
