Meet Sofy Yuditskaya, the GO Neighborhood Coordinator for Bensonhurst, Gravesend, Bath Beach, Dyker Heights, and Bay Ridge. During her interview, Sharon and I were completely impressed by Sofy’s awareness of the artists in these areas - particularly her grasp of what’s going on in the Russian and Jewish communities. She grew up in these neighborhoods and when asked if this was a lot of ground for one person to cover, her response was she used to roller blade through the streets and she extremely excited to get back to her old stomping ground. Sofy is a media artist and designer with an impressive resume (she’s worked on projects at the Eyebeam Center for Art & Technology, the ARS Electronica Center, the Netherlands Institute voor Media Kunst, and the Games for Learning Institute). In her own words…
I’ve lived in the area for 7-10 years.
You’ll find me hanging out at the beach!
I’ll never move from the area because the all night fruit stands are epic and the perogies are as good as they get!
