Noteworthy Photography

  • Burning Flags Press
    The website of Glen E. Friedman. Renowned for both his work with musicians like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, Slayer (and many, many more) as well as his groundbreaking documentation of the burgeoning skateboard phenomenon in the late `70's, Glen has been privvy to (and has summarily captured on film) some of the coolest stuff ever. He's also an incredibly insightful and nice guy to boot.
  • SoHo Blues - Photography by Allan Tannenbaum
    Allan Tannenbaum is a local photographer who has been everywhere and shot everything, from members of Blondie hanging out at the Mudd Club through the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th. You could spend hours on this site, and I have.
  • Robert Otter Photographs
    Amazing vintage photographs of New York City, specifically my own neighborhood, Greenwich Village.
  • oboylephoto
    Just some intensely cool photographs of abandoned places.
  • Rikki Ercoli's Legends of Punk
    Much like Glen E. Friedman (see above), Rikki Ercoli has managed to catch some amazing bands in their manic element.
  • Lost & Found Film
    A fascinating website devoted to undeveloped film found in vintage camers. A curious mixture of interesting and spooky.
  • Pinhole Photography by Veronica Saddler
    NYC landmarks shot through a pinhole lens. Neat-o.
  • Eugene Merinov
    Compelling shots of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave band performing live in various long-lost venues in a pre-sanitized New York City. Great stuff!
  • Edward Colver

Unbelieavably Eva's is still on 8th Street which in the late 70's/early 80's was the only place in the neighborhood with a bathroom, cheap falafel, and spicy peppers on the tables that you could fool your naive friends into eating whole and then watch them cry for about an hour.

I too am surprised to see Eva's still there. I was a frequent patron there in the 70's and into the early 80's while driving a taxi and attending NYU.

About the photo of the 8th Street Bookshop... It had to have been made no earlier than the mid 1960's. That's the rear end of a 1964 Pontiac Bonneville on the right side of the frame.

When I moved to NYC in 85 I was totally broke and homeless. Mike at Eva's always looked out for me. A free falafel and $20 just when I needed it. Diamond geezer.

Sean

I went to Eva's constantly, from 1980 to 1983. Mike was geat, and so was the food! They were always very nice people, unlike the creeps at the pizza place at the other end of the block!!!
