David Rockefeller's Downtown Lower Manhattan Association (DLMA) helped create SoHo, one of the first New York neighborhoods to revitalize at a time of real and perceived decline in American central cities. In the years from 1960 to 1980, SoHo (roughly the 12 square blocks between Broadway, West Broadway, Houston and Canal Streets in Manhattan) went from a declining industrial area filled with decrepit loft buildings to a vibrant artist colony filled with increasingly upscale art galleries, retail stores and loft residences. In a sense, SoHo was one of New York's first gentrified neighborhoods.
