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

What about Downtown Beirut ?

Alex in NYC

Mentioned in last graf, and mentioned here previously. But yes -- a classic.

GG Allin

Terminal Bar?

Karen

Aztec Lounge and Downtown Beirut were my favorites.I think all this makes me so sad in direct correlation with how much I loved it all.Man,it was beautiful.My idea of beautiful.

This post is awesome, but makes me so sad! Like others, I totally miss Alcatraz, Lismar & Downtown Beirut, but also Chameleon which was on 6th near A, Mission Bar which turned into Ace on 5th St., Psycho Mungo's (now The Library). Hardly anyone carded back then. Good times.

I miss Coney Island High, now a mini condo.

esquared

I know that you've posted about Coney Island High and it isn't really a dive bar and more of a music venue, but I still miss it,nonetheless. Same goes for the old Continental.

Alex in NYC

Technically, I consider those joints music venues, but y'know... we're splitting hairs.

esquared

Agree that the joints that I mentioned are music venues. But the old Continental can be considered a dive bar at least according to this.

Then again, what do I know? Didn't really get into the dive bar scene (was more into the clubs and live music scene) 'til late and when most of them have already closed.

I like all those classic objects like Coney Island High

Jackson

The original Village Idiot on 1st ave Next to Downtown Beirut, Aztec Lounge, and the ORIGINAL International Bar on St. Marks btwn 1st and A.
