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

EXCELLENT find!

But I'm not sure if life EVER calms the fuck down ;^/

And although you have provided more info on NYC album covers (and you have probably seen the post already), Ephemeral NY had a nice post on same:

Thanks for posting Verlaine--great find.

The thoroughly obnoxious "Collectible" residences concept reminds me of what may have been a SNL skit that involved Trump flying over Manhattan and treating it like the game Monopoly: pointing out the window and saying: "Got it...need it...got it...need it... ."

When and where will this end?

Had to include this here because (almost for once) it is ON TOPIC....an old tv program with a few NYC locations that I'm sure you will recognize (remembering of course that tv can be soooo bad, it's good :+)
Best part is fishing beers out of the Hudson River :
