Take a look at a very different Soho in NYC! Check out how Soho NYC looks like during the Covid-19 Pandemic 2020 in the photos below! An empty Soho, with all the stores closed. It became filled with Graffiti Art and Powerful Murals after the Black Lives Matter protests that took place all around the country and the world to fight against racism. Today, most of Soho NYC is boarded up and filled with amazing Art with powerful messages reflecting what’s going on in the USA.
It’s sad seeing everything empty and all the stores closed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. You can easily spot many stores empty and available for rent. On the other hand, seeing Soho like this is a unique experience because the art is powerful, and as soon as everything starts going back to normal and stores start opening up, most of the art will be gone! It kind of feels like the “old days” when Soho was filled with artists. Take a look at the complete Soho NYC Guide here on this other post!
