South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing.
Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in
converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once
an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage
and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor
galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting
studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a
strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new
