Albany Avenue in East Flatbush

(Photos by Bald Punk) Today I was going to see a friend and took some pics along the way. Photos are in order of footsteps. The neighborhood is right on the edge of East Flatbush. Somewhere just past P.S. 91(see pics below) begins Crown Heights. I took these a few months ago: King’s County Hospital – […]

Beethoven

(Symphony No.9) Like millions of others, my two favorite composers are Bach and Beethoven. Here are two great Beethoven pieces. While below are two versions of “Moonlight Sonata.” I was thinking that the one with the beautiful photos was unnecessary given the melody. What do you think? (Moonlight Sonata – Ver 1.) (Moonlight Sonata Ver 2.) […]

Various Staten Island Photos

(La Tourette – Photos by Bald Punk) At work we’ve been doing a job on Staten Island. Strangely enough, the next time I saw the ghost of a slave named Hardy was in SI. I will tell you all about that in a few days. Here are the previous posts in that series: White Fire In My Head More coming […]

Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927)

I’m tired and I’m going to bed and I really don’t have anything to say about Metropolis other than every once in a while I’ll be at work and various scenes from it will flash through my head. This is first part of the “restored version” of Metropolis. Go to YouTube if you would like to see […]

Storm Damage in Staten Island

  (Photos by Bald Punk) We just had a terrible storm in NYC. There are trees down everywhere. Here are a few pics I took in Staten Island. Most are from Historic Richmond Town. The two nighttime ones are from Manor Road. And there is one from Latourette Golf Course. Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

In My Head

(Bald Punk – Photo by T) On the way home from Jeremy’s Ale House I had an all-too-real daydream about turn-of-the-century Coney Island and a juxtaposed slave ship that was sailing into NY Harbor. The ghost of a slave named Hardy had literally reached out to me from the bowels of the ship. His hand blotted out the lights of Coney . . . Home from […]

Avenue A in the East Village

(Photos by Bald Punk) I couldn’t post yesterday because we had a power outage. I was in Staten Island and the whole freaking place was pitch black. The place looked the best I’ve ever seen it. Tomorrow I will put up the next story post titled “In My Head.” It will pick up where White Fire left off. […]

Ramones Live at CBGB’s

It wasn’t such a big deal if your band played at CBGB’s. Getting a show was pretty easy as long as you didn’t mind going on stage at 12:45 am on a Sunday night. The key was to bring in a decent crowd so you would get a call back. I remember one night when one of the bands I was in […]

Olde New York

  (Ella Morton of Rocketboom talks with Manhattan Borough Historian, Michael Miscione) The above is an interesting video about the changing landscape of NYC. It’s something I’ve often wondered about, and in an unpublished novel I wrote a while back, I imagined a future in which it would come to a halt. It was just a backdrop to a […]

Most Holy Redeemer Church in the East Village

(Photos by Bald Punk) I’ve made so many excuses about my photos in the past and on these, I’m going with: “I was cold, hungry, and it was a Sunday.” The one above came out nice. In the future I promise better work. Though I want you to know I did sit down on the […]
