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

Great reading, Alex. Thanks for sharing the memories of a place I know very little about. Sounds like it was a blast.

Did some digging - found some details about the guy who was ALMOST killed in the elevator shaft at Danceteria. Thought you might enjoy reading:

what about the ORIGINAL location of Danceteria, none of my younger friends seem to remember that place, that i think starred Sean Cassette as a DJ, who was at Hurrah's before he championed the O.G. Danceteria, where was that? like in the 40's i think?

I loved Danceteria and back then nobody used to card if your hair was big and spiky enough. I hate the way they always check ID these days—aren't my crow's feet evidence enough that I be old?

The *original* location of Danceteria was evidently somewhere on 38th street, but I don't know anything more than that.

Sigh..makes me wish I hit the clubs more. The Beasties played there about a half a dozen times during their Cookie Puss days. I wish I could have been there. I'm a little younger.
