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

Argh. This hurts, not because I went in there very often, but because it was a daily reminder that not every establishment in lower Manhattan is a purveyor curated fro-yo. Plus who could resist their preference for chunky barware:


Teeny tiny silver lining: There will be no Full Liquor license at this location as it is too close to the Village Temple. Being that it's already vented for a restaurant that's probably what's going to go in there.


I wish I could believe it will be a restaurant again. Not that I don't have complete trust in real estate companies. But if you're skeptical too, email the realty agent: and let them know we want a restaurant with the same home family like qualities as the University Coffee Shop. Thanks.


Shut the doors & close it down. Most expensive, sloppiest tuna sandwich I have ever eaten. Maybe they will put a new watering hole, w/o any bloody televisions in there, but gadzooks please no more pizza places and/or pasta joints. How about a record store! haha
As for SilverSpurs - agreed dispiriting Texan vibe - but seeing Pablo and having breakfast at the counter with the grumpiest of the locals is sometimes a treat, along with watching the cook staff bark at one another in a sort of Greekish-Spanishy tinge. Only the counter, don't deal with the tables, as the waitresses are a hot mess with a roll of the dice.
