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

Paul Wady

He was living by the Hudson, by the sea? Yep, just like the Mersey. Central park was his Calderstones park, over the road from Auntie Mimi's on Menlove Avenue, Liverpool, where my family lived for over 30 years. He'd have roamed and sampled but sooner or later he'd have to touch down somewhere and be blokey. Get into some good arguments. It's what Scousers do, La? Look for working class bars with real characters in them? People he could get his teeth into. Nothing fancy.


In 1975 I spotted John and Yoko on Central Park West, I was across the street from them on the park side. John looked at me, I smiled and waved, John waved back.

From 2006 to 2012, I worked at E.U.E. Screen Gems on east 44th street, as a Technical Director for The Rachael Ray Show (don’t hold that against me) when it taped there. Around the corner on East 43rd is Sushi Yasuda; an upscale Japanese restaurant, where we would go from time to time for lunch. I saw Yoko there three times and spoke with her once. Yoko was approachable, charming and gracious during our conversation lasting about five minutes.

James Taylor

About ten years ago my brother was visiting New York for the first time. One day he got lost in Central Park while searching for the "Strawberry Fields" memorial and decided to ask for directions. He turned around and who should be standing there but Yoko.
