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

April 12, 2008



I hadn't been around there in years and I was just went back couple of weeks ago and I'm not exaggerating when I tell you it made me physically sick. I thought I was going to throw up or worse go on a murderous rampage.

The Hog Pit Has been a long favorite of Mine. Since Day One, The when Damien took over. Having run Hell Fire Next Door it became a Fond Hangout. Great Food, Lone Star Beer, Great Bar Bitches, & A Non Stop Juke Box.
Alas I thought it would out live the gentrification of the neighborhood. But I thought the same for Hell Fire, J's, The Lure, & The Village Idiot. Western Beef Became the Apple Store.
There goes the neighborhood to Greedy landlords, A Money & Business Giuliani & Blomberg administration.
It' may become high real estate value, Shining Glass & Steel. But The Neighborhood & it's charm will only last in our memories.

In leather & pride,
Lenny Waller
Sometimes Change is not so good.


dudes and such!
Sorry but I'm actually old enough to remember when the "meat packing district" had in moo cow meat! that's life!


Reading these posts by you, Jeremiah, and EVGrieve, I'm almost glad I left NYC when I did (2005). If you want something grittier you can always come to Philly...
