Community News & Politics - Soho



Community activists know a thing or two. The High Line was all the rage despite community opposition, like Trump SoHo (which was supposed to be a condo-hotel) in Hudson Square, by the way. Here's an example of "I told you so" that draws lots of tourists for Chelsea, but does little for the residents. Perhaps, the City Council's recent enactment of tougher laws on landlord abuse will help our affordable housing crisis -- another issue that residents have been screaming about for years.

 Recently, more interested in knowing why there was a line on the periphery of SoHo, not even close to the once cobblestoned West Broadway thoroughfare, lines started forming around 10 a.m. on Broome Street and 6th Avenue. It seemed like an anomaly. There were no designer clothing sales like Barney's and SoHo isn't particularly known for people willing to line up for anything. Not any more. 


New Yorkers, come together and join New York City’s charitable, social and fashion communities for its annual Housing Works “Fashion for Action” event. Supported by hundreds of the fashion industry’s most influential designers, the event is an exclusive designer discount sale featuring a curated collection of sought after luxury brands. Proceeds from this charity event will support Housing Works’ youth outreach programming, which provides dedicated HIV-prevention and treatment services for young people living with HIV/AIDS or at-risk of infection.


On July 17th, Housing Works Soho Shop will be transformed into an art gallery with a special opening featuring donated pieces from artist friends including Jemima Kirke (Girls), Scooter LaForge and Mel Odom as well as a curated collection donated from generous New Yorkers own collections, volunteers and staff.
