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

Congrats on the new job.

I've ben Day Jobbing down here in FiDi land for the past 11 years. Took a little getting used to, tbh. But I do like it.

Maybe see you for a drink at Diamond Jim Brady's!

Good luck in your new venture. Regarding this: "It’s just odd to be traversing through neighborhoods I’ve normally associated with leisure and exploration to get to work." This reminds of when I lived in Bklyn Hts and worked @ E40th & 3rd. I've always gotten off the subway quite a ways from my destination specifically to walk (a different route every day), especially when I was still headed for a cube farm. It was always decidedly weird walking through Chinatown and Little Italy @ 7:30 am (after having only been there hours earlier).

Hope the slowdown here doesn't last too long, but do what you've gotta do.

Great news! Break a leg.

I've been working in Tribeca since April, the best part of which has been getting to walk the length of a relatively deserted Crosby Street twice daily. Makes a change after working in the Flatiron area for the previous seven years (although I miss Eisenberg's dreadfully).

In the immortal words of Maynard G Krebs, sad to hear you're back to WOOORRRRRKKKKKK!!!

And sad to hear about Brian Fine's passing. I know a couple of used groove store owners who are afraid to quit because they don't think they can handle a straight life (SERIOUSLY!), and rock'n'roll retirement plans are spotty at best. At least he got to do something he loved for a very long time.

Congratulations! Hope you're enjoying the new gig!

We could use another pitcher on the staff. Tell 'em Gaylord sentcha.
