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

The Taxi Driver shot is indeed on the corner of 13th and Third. The partially hidden sign which reads "FURNITURE" belongs to Gothic Cabinet Craft which is still in business. I bought a bed there once. Scouting NY did a great before-and-after series on this movie a couple of years ago.

Regarding Mark's votes...

1. Yep
2. Yep, and nope. Wrong avenue.
3. Yep
4. Yes, but wrong address
5. Yep
6. Yep and ..... address yet to be determined (it turned out not to be 21st and B'way, which is what I'd initially guessed).
7. Yep, but I want to pinpoint the corner
8. Yep
9. Yep, but, again, wrong avenue.
10. Yep, but wrong address.

Answers (and updated pictures) coming soon. :)


Sheesh Mark.....can't'ya be a little quicker....took just over an hour.....let's tighten this up man!D

Mark Coleman

bonus pics are stumpers:

11. The Dictators - never seen a street sign
like that in NYC, totally throwing me off.
12. Beastie Boys - guessing Bway near NYU?

#4 and #10 - so familiar. I know the spot but can't name the street

James Taylor

Number 11 looks like London.


Last Bonus Addition #12: Beastie Boys...Beastie Boy photographer has to be Glen E. Friedman. Also a young Rick Rubin in there when he was their DJ.

Alex in NYC

Believe it or not, it's not Glenn's, it's Josh Creuse. But yeah, that's Rick Rubin (aka DJ Double-R)

James Taylor

Got it! Blondie are on Eight Avenue and 30th (Kiss are a few blocks down). That had been bugging me all day...

Alex in NYC

Full, expansive post (complete with updated pics) coming shortly. Still trying to divine the exact locations of a couple of these.

Travis Bickle is on east 13th, just east of 3rd Ave, looking west. This was the block where the final bloodbath took place. And around the corner from the long lost DUGOUT tavern, and it has a small role in the movie.

Jodie FOster was seen on rare occasions in the DUGOUT in the mid-80's.


9. Kiss is standing on the SW corner of 23rd and 8th looking up 8th avenue. The 2 story building that NYSC is in can be seen at the right
