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

Arrgh!!! One thing that sticks out from the letter is that she isn't claiming that her dog doesn't bark it's head off. Nor that you're making it all up, but that you are the problem for being bothered by it. That's not gossip you're spreading, it's fact!

And also..her slipping a note under your door isn't exactly "appreciative" when talking about your kids as either...

give the co-cop manager (or whatever the official channels are)a copy of her note, and a copy of the post above (mildly edited, you don't need the part about your family and pets, it has zilch to do with animals, but general neighbor courtesy)and ask how THEY would deal with it if they were in your situation.

& If you & family can, don't engage with her at all. tho far easier said than done, i comprende

let her lose her s***, not make you lose yours.

Maybe consider buying "Gren's" apartment?
More space, no barking, instant approval.

Alex in NYC

Nah, her apartment is a one bedroom.

I just love millennial entitlement. Love it love it love it. There's not a lot you can do. Things will get awkward for a while, but I don't think Gwen will be your neighbour for a lot longer.

Hahaha “Gwen’s dog’s clarion bark-a-thons!” That’s one of the funniest turns of phrase I’ve read in ages!

Call the management company and find out if she’s a subletter or owner. If she’s a renter start a campaign to get her kicked out, or her lease not renewed. If she’s an owner you go to the board and complain to them and make them deal with it.

Also if there have been subletters in that unit for years, don’t you have rules about not allowing renters for more than a certain number of years, are they perhaps in violation.

Failing that, start complaining t he doorman 5 times a day and don’t give in, at least just to irritate her into sub,issiin.
