What is the SoHo Alliance?

The SoHo Alliance is a volunteer community organization founded in 1981.  The Alliance is the successor to the SoHo Artists Association, founded in 1968, which legalized loft living in SoHo.  In fact, it was at the SAA’s first meeting that the name “SoHo” was adopted and popularized. Our civic activism helped create SoHo and see it flourish.

We are your neighborhood watchdogs.  We work with elected officials and city agencies to ensure our community thrives.  Our hotline 212-353-8466 is available seven days a week to assist residents and businesses alike when a problem arises or questions need answered.

We work controlling inappropriate development pressures.  Our achievements in historic preservation have turned SoHo into one of the most renowned landmarked districts in the world.  Our success at curtailing nightclubs and late-night bars has ensured a quiet neighborhood in the evening once the shoppers and tourists depart.  We work to maintain clean sidewalks with our partner, Clean Up SoHo, and we are involved with transportation issues that affect our neighborhood.

However, we need you to invest in SoHo and in your own well-being.
