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

Hey, there's an Equinox on Greenwich for all the beautiful people. And a Starbucks. What more do you need...

Alex in NYC

Sadly, that Equinox took the place of the late lamented Art Greenwich theatre (http://vassifer.blogs.com/.a/6a00d8341c18b253ef013485d98386970c-pi)

@ken mac..

You my Gentrifying friend are a heartless fuck, get outta the city.

David McDonough

That's a touching story about Tea and Sympathy.
You're right: Everyone who can should get over to Greenwich Avenue and spend some money. I'll start with a meal at Chez Brigitte and follow with a cocktail at the Dew Drop Inn.
Oh.
P.S.@sd -- I suspect ken mac was joshing.

The women at Tea & Sympathy are terrific. Whenever I go they’re always kind and unpretentious. I love that place, and not just because of their scones and clotted cream!

My husband and I experienced newbie parent jaundice stress with our own daughter so I know exactly what that felt like! Your Nicki story is a great one. Loved the Art Greenwich and hate to hear that the local businesses there are vulnerable too. Will do my best to get the word out.

I agree completely with your incredulity. I had a life saving operation at St. Vincent's in 1974 and my daughter was born there in 2009. The idea that the hospital would actually close seemed completely ludicrous until it happened. It still makes me sad that it is gone because it played such a prominent role in my life. Twice.

That's a lovely story, Alex - Nicky is definitely a kind soul and Tea & Sympathy, along with Elephant and Castle, are two of my favorite NYC institutions as well. I lived on Jones Street for a year, walking distance to St. Vincent's, and was truly sad to see it go.
Heaven protect us all from the real estate termites of this city.
