Yep Uhuh


You two should have your own PBS show.

Can't imagine how low the ratings would be, but I'd be watching.

Nice post, but you could have just asked Godlis - he took the photo.


Yes - 9th street it is. To have my photograph subjected to a Bob Egan archeological investigation makes me feel a bit historical and hysterical at the same time - I'm a total fan of his Bob Dylan LP cover creeds. I now feel worthy of the likes of Schatzberg and Kramer - ha!

it was indeed the fall of 1977 when I walked (lured) television into walking across St.Marks (Fred lived on St.Marks between 1st & 2nd ave), past the holiday cocktail lounge & stromboli's) and up first ave where we came upon this enormous puddle on the corner of 9th. I had them wait on the corner while I traversed around to the other side of the water, to take the photo - I think they thought I was a bit crazy. That sidewalk is still kind of crooked & there probably was a clogged drain at the time. That corner was a fruit vegetable stand for years. To coin a phrase, First Avenue was so medieval - strewn with colorful little shops (buttons, curtains, etc.) excellent as backdrops - all now restaurants. Believe me, nobody noticed us at all.
