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

Ah ha! I'll hold off until this mystery is solved before I challenge you with another one. I'm thinkin' Lou Reed may be your next opponent...

One thought...could "...IRE S.C." stand for something Fire Soccer Club?


Doesn't look like there's room for "room," would guess it's Gramercy Gym. Quick search turns up a 1971 Village Voice reference to such an establishment:

"the gym is housed in a loft on 14th Street, up two flights of creaky wooden stairs",3048980

And this has it at 116 East 14th,

Turns out it's the reason that that stretch of East 14th is also called Cus D’Amato Way. But sadly, the original building is long gone.


I found the Gym too. I wonder if it was in the cast iron building with the pool hall? Is the site now one of the NYU student ghettos? What a blast looking through that 1971 Voice though! Jill Johnson, Vito Acconci.
