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 shot of a snowy wet and dark winters day. I must have passed you by hundreds of times.

Here's a pic of what was there before the 5 Spot

I wrote to a friend of mine who traveled about the neighborhood years ago, he wrote back:

That was the 5 Spot as I knew it - but probably not the 5 Spot where
Ornette played, as they moved to this new location after Ornette played there, I
think - but that's nit picking - it was nice to see, & I prefer NYC in the
rain - at least in photographs - I hate rain in real life.

I believe the original Five Spot was a little to the south on Cooper Square/Third Avenue.

I love this photo!! I actually blog my grandma Maggie's diary, who lived on St. Mark's place in the 30s and it is wild to think this was in the future for her! http://suzannekingsbury.net/2011/09/hitler-and-floods-and-washing-your-clothes-in-the-bathtub/
