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

Bowery Boogie

"Once, this kind of nerve might have gotten his plate-glass windows smashed. (We ain’t got time for that now.) These days it brings middle-aged Bouluddites in town cars and sportswear to eat and drink beer, to talk gaily of the market, the Galliano show in Paris, the Astor verdict, Letterman. "

C'mon...would you REALLY sooner eat out of a toilet bowl?

Well, that depends on the toilet bowl, I suppose. WITHOUT MY HYPERBOLE, I AM NOTHING, TIM!!!!

SAM SIFTON used to be an incredibly cool guy and a great writer for the NYPress back in the early 90's then he went on to NEW YORK i believe when that Tina person took over, he also wrote this, http://www.burningflags.com/press/newyorkpress.php so either he's changed or you may want to re-read that and give him a bit of credibility based on my opinion... i'll go and try to read the piece...

Alex in NYC

Funnily enough, when my wife read this, she was outraged with me (she being a big Sifton fan as well -- how have I been missing his stuff all this time?) Perhaps I'm being too harsh and/or protective and/or sensitive and/or juvenile (very probably the latter). It's really Danielle Boulud who is at fault here. But really -- "Now I Wanna Serve Some Sausage"? We Ain't Got Time For That Now"? C'mon now.
