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

Say what you like about the movie, the above still says "New York" a thousand times more than a walk down 14th Street today.

Alex in NYC

Very true.

Gena

"Century's End" is on the BLBC soundtrack + it's an amazing Donald Fagen song. But yeah, the movie bites...

Man, the area was beautiful back then. I remember the Sahara Hotel on 3rd and 14th Street, how much money did I spend following a whore up the shabby stairs? A hell of a lot, that's for sure. It's in my book '100 Whores.'

Eric

Wow, what a picture. I remember 14th street in the late 80s/early 90s, when I would take the M14 to high school. I remember it always being kind of seedy, but never dangerous. I think I remember some stores that sold old magazines and books. It was real ungentrified, and filled with pizza shops galore. I would love to see more photos of 14th Street from this era.

James Taylor

Yeah, I was going to mention that song too... Donald Fagen is the coolest cat. Despite Alex's less-than glittering review I kind of want to see this movie again now!
