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

I first went there as an NYU student, in 198?. I last went there either last Thursday or Friday. There was no clue at all inside that it was their last day or two. None. Like you said, it was dependable and good...not great but perfectly fine. And one of the many real landmarks on the block.

Sorry dude. Your family's history is disappearing one block at a time.

This condo-ization of New York is never going to end. The irony is that alot of these condo-ites come to the city because of the 'character' of the neighborhoods..the very same 'character' that they are destroying.

I've been here almost 30 years. A year or two ago, I was tired of all the whitewashing and was ready to leave. That feeling went away for a while..but now it's coming back. What's the fucking point to it anymore? A city full of rich people? Who-cares! Nothing to miss there!
LA is looking better and better all the time.


They had a good vegan by default slice there as well, nice old NY feel... btw. not to mention University Pita will go to the wrecking ball too, that place is good! craziness all around.


Sad. When I was a New School student in the 80s, a slice and a soda at Stromboli was my go-to treat when I was feeling flush. I stopped by a few months ago. It was a dependable slice--the sauce held up to the cheese grease a little better than some places.
