Economist Letters: Saving Soho


You painted a downbeat picture of London’s Soho (“So long, Soho”, January 3rd). The transformation of parts of the area reflect society’s changing appetites, but its vibe as an edgy bit of town and a place to have fun have not been lost. Soho continually reinvents itself. We have seen seedy sex shops, businesses that have been displaced by the internet, replaced with pop-up shops and new artisan retailers like those in Ham Yard. These meet the needs of consumers, residents and businesses in true Soho style, rather than simply allowing an internet age to whitewash the high street.
