I was thumbing through some ancient copies of SPIN recently (which is where I found that fleeting shot of Freebeing Records in the last post) and came across a photo of the Velvets by Greenhaus that I don't ever remember seeing before. See that photo below (and click on it to enlarge).
Invariably taken from the same shoot the resulted with those more widely-distributed images, this picture finds the foursome holding court in a park somewhere. As I look at it, however, I'm having a hard time placing it. I want to say that it's the Jefferson Market Library in the heart of the Village that looms behind them (appended with the since-torn-down prison structure that formerly abutted it). To the right, you can see the signage of a luncheonette. I'm entirely guessing, but is that the corner of West 11th Street, where Greenwhich Avenue meets 7th Avenue, which would put the Velvets in what is now the derelict power island that used to feed St. Vincent's Hospital.
Am I right? What say you?
