Dreaming of Lincoln

(Abraham Lincoln) I met this kid who looked like Abraham Lincoln. I’m still referring to him as a kid even though he was a junior in college and 6’4.” Fresh-faced with an uncanny presence, he said his name was Alexander and that his nickname was Buddy. I called him Alex. It wasn’t until our second […]

George Washington’s Farewell Address

In the video Senator Mike Johanns delivers George Washington’s farewell address. The language is a bit tough to follow, but it’s still one of the most amazing documents in American History. Both James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, the two brightest Founders, helped him write it.     Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

Bethesda Angel and Terrace in Central Park

(Photos by Bald Punk- Bethesda Fountain constructed early 1860’s)  Um, my shadows is in a lot of these pics. Sorry about that. There were three differentcouples taking wedding photos and I couldn’t resist taking a could of snaps of them. I hope the brides were wearing long-johns under their gowns. It was about 25 degrees when […]

Blood Manor – Haunted “House” on West Side

This place is over by the West Side Highway (the Joe DiMaggio Highway) on 27th Street. That’s where the old Tunnel Club used to be. It was one of my favorites.   Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

South Beach in Staten Island

(Photos by Bald Punk) I took these photos a few weeks back. We had just passed a beautiful fountain made with life-size dolphins on Father Capodanno Boulevard. It must have cost the City a bundle. My lady friend had asked if I wanted to stop and photo it, but I was too slow to answer. So a block later when we did […]

A Stranger No More . . .

Last weekend I met this emo kid who wasn’t so much a kid. Very tall and gaunt, with the look of a man twice his age, my guess is that he was either a college freshman or a runaway. Our conversation lasted a few minutes, and with all the spiritual activity in NYC, I should have […]

Around Cooper Square

(Photos by Bald Punk) I took these pics around Cooper Square after we parked our car on 3rd Ave and Great Jones St. It’s one of the handful of places in NYC that you can find a parking space-sometimes. Most of photos are labeled. Hold the mouse over them for a description. If I didn’t know […]

The Ramones – Rockaway Beach “Live”

I’ve only read about fifteen Stephen King novels and went to five or six Ramones concerts. I’m embarrassed by both of those stats. I remember one time when I saw The Ramones at L’amours in Brooklyn and got thrown out for one reason or another. The funny thing was that I had hardly landed on the sidewalk when the exit door […]
