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

I enjoyed your post; having gone to Cooper for my undergrad (class of 04), I have an interest in how the neighborhood has changed with time and how it continues to develop. Nostalgic to see your photo of the Carl Fisher building w/o those "architectural lofts" in front!

However, one nitpick -- Cooper's three disciplines are art, architecture, and *engineering*. (Photography, which you mentioned in your article, is actually under the art school's purview.)

Thanks, and keep up the interesting articles!

Oh, whoops. Thanks for the correction, Marie.

Thank you so much for providing the above photograph of Astor Place. This is how I remember it when I first visited New York in 1992/3, and when I came back to live five years later. It's amazing how much this area has changed. I like to remember it as it looks here.

Remember when McDonalds was the Anarchy Cafe?
