American cities changed forever when, beginning in the 1950s, artists, developers, and others looked upon a decaying industrial zone in Lower Manhattan and saw opportunity: cheap rents, lax regulation, and wide open spaces. The area that became SoHo was the forerunner of gentrified districts in cities nationwide and introduced the idea that art might drive municipal prosperity. Without the example of SoHo, no one would have any idea what the term "creative class" refers to. Aaron Shkuda studies the transition of SoHo from industrial space to an artist enclave to an affluent residential area, focusing on the legacy of urban renewal in and around SoHo; the growth of artist-led redevelopment; the conflict between residents and property owners; and the city's embrace of loft conversions as an urban development strategy. In the process, Shkuda comes to fresh conclusions about what happened to bring about SoHo, and what it has meant for all of our cities.
