Great pics but even better memories. You were so fortunate to have seen New York during these various eras.

thanks for the memories. i lived at 14th & 9th from fall 1981 to spring 1985 and this just may be the Manhattan neighborhood that's changed the most in recent years (along w/Times Square and the LES below Houston).


Great post and pics, Alex. I took a visiting friend 'round much this same route last weekend - its pull is kinda irresistible, even as the area changes beyond all recognition (and comprehension).

Sidenote: I ran sound for "The Donkey Show" at El Flamingo ten years ago - it always remained a nightclub, even during the run of the show - we'd commandeer the place for two shows a night, then slowly turn it back over to the regular club clientele.

the Manhattan experimental music scene has never totally recovered from the loss of the Cooler. Tonic helped for a while, but now that's gone too.


I'm staring right now at my Pantera/Wrathchild America ticket stub from 1991 - which of course, was from the Marquee. I was 14 and it was my first non-arena concert. I'm amazed you mentioned it in this posting, as none of my co-workers even remember the joint! Ahh, good times indeed.
