Photo by myself on Sullivan and Spring Streets, in Soho.
A film shoot took place in a playground in Soho.
I asked a production assistant what the shoot was for. He told me it's for 'The Girls', an upcoming series on HBO.
Apparently 'The Girls' will be modeled on Sex and The City, that is, a younger batch of women, and their trials and tribulations in New York City.

Some people might be surprised to know there are playgrounds in Soho.
There are schools, churches and graveyards too, in this charming neighborhood. There is even an outdoor pool.
I never lived in Soho (which stands for 'South Of HOuston street', but a friend of mind did, and I was insanely jealous of her. I'm sure her kitchen was about the size of a postage stamp, but who needs a kitchen when you live in such a cool neighborhood?
Soho is known for it's gigantic loft buildings and eclectic boutiques. During the 1970's, the neighborhood was nearly torn down to make way for a new undergound expressway.
