First Time I Met The Cigar Store Indian

Filed under Secrets of NYC, Stories

(Photos by Bald Punk – Title: Pigeon Walks The Line) The first time I laid my eyes on the cigar store Indian, he was just an old man feeding the pigeons in Central Park. Clear as day, I can remember how he was hunched, a bag of Wonder Bread dangling from his knobby fingers as he flicked bits of […]

(Artist: Craig McPherson – click twice to expand)  Okay, so I didn’t go to Brazil. You remember when I said I worked at Lehman Brothers. I told you how nice the lobby was — it’s the AMEX building at 3WFC. I had promised that I would take some photos of the murals. Well, I did.     Here are […]

King’s County Hospital – East Flatbush

(Photo by Bald Punk – Kings County Psychiatric Hospital – click to expand) I was passing through East Flatbush in Brooklyn today, and took some pictures. It’s not the best place to live, so I was hoping to get some real artsy photos and try to portray the neigborhood in a different light. It was a stupid idea. […]

It’s Not What You See

(Photos by Bald Punk – Spring Street from Mercer) Dog-tired after demoing an apartment the other day, I avowed to walk the mile or so uptown to Strand Bookstore on 13th Street and B’way. It would have been easier to jump on the subway. But I was in the mood for a good walk. I left a dust cloud and heap of rubble in my wake, […]

Cigar Store Indian

  (Photos by Bald Punk – George Washington Statue in Union Square) There are people out there to whom life must be an adventure. They always look for new shit stuff to make them feel good about their “direction.” I’m not one of them. If I could change one thing about my life, I wish I […]

   (Photos by Bald Punk – Old Stone House) After I finished posting THE IMMORTALS, my lady friend and myself along with the pizza and Chinese delivery guys, paid a visit to the Old Stone House. It’s at 336 3rd St between 4th and 5th Avenue in Brooklyn. I was there before, though this time I wanted to get some pictures for you. […]

Being in the right place is important: mind, body, soul, and location. It’s not a guarantee of fame and fortune or riches–but doors will open, good and bad. For some, like the homeless man in LIFE IN TWO HOURS AND FIFTEEN MINUTES, he was at the right “place.” Near perfect in one sense, and in […]

Empire State Building

(Photo by Bald Punk – click to expand) Click here to see the pictures I took the other day of the Empire State Building. I LOVE this building. It lifts my spirits whenever I see it. These were the hardest pictures to take. I kept getting dizzy, and also had to “take a moment” to […]

Ugliest Building in Manhattan

Filed under Photos, Video

(Photos by Bald Punk – click to expand) This building is on the corner of 8th Avenue and 56th Street. I can’t say for certain that it’s the ugliest building I’ve seen in Manhattan, but I’ve never had such a visceral reaction to a design. Looking at it made me want to heave. It’s decorated […]
