Empty Spaces

(Scrappy Doodles – Photos by Joe) My gloved hand along with a red leash was outstretched to Scrappy D, who had led the way into the northeast corner of Central Park. Splayed out in front of us was the Harlem Meer. Ice had started to form on the lake’s still waters. The sun beamed just above the buildings on Fifth Avenue, and yellow rays spread through gray clouds. […]

Times Square – The Cheesy Heyday

(Times Square of approximately the 60 and 70’s  1970/*see comments)  The changes in Times Square over the past twenty years have been pretty miraculous. I would hate to imagine the impact it would have on the lives of New Yorkers if it was still a porn haven. The fact that MTV is on The Great White Way is […]

(Photos by Bald Punk) St. Paul’s Chapel is on Broadway by City Hall Park. Behind it is Ground Zero. It was founded in 1764. It is the oldest public building in use in NYC.  George Washington worshiped there on his Inauguration Day, April 30, 1789. Below you will find a photo of his pew. I’ve passed […]

Times Square on New Years Eve morning

(Photos by Bald Punk) I took these photos around 930am this morning. I thought I would see more nuts hanging around waiting for the ball to drop tonight. In all my years, I’ve never been in Times Square at midnight. It’s one of those touristy things that’s of no interest to most New Yorkers. Have a Happy […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) Last Friday afternoon, after work which had me gutting an apartment in Brooklyn, I took the R train back to Manhattan and got off at the 8th Street subway station in Greenwich Village. I came up the blackened, gum-blotted stairs and was met by dark gray skies. I thought it was going to […]

Old Seven sailed over with Hudson

(Replica of Henry Hudson’s Half Moon/Halve Maen – uncredited) “Some say he came over with Columbus,” said Benny, “the cigar Store Indian,” who is an old man with a slight build and boyish face. He shook his head.“Columbus didn’t know where he was going. He wouldn’t have taken such a chance. No. He came over with Hudson. I […]

My Favorite Photo + Milestone

(Photos by Bald Punk – click twice to fully enlarge) I wish I had more time for photography. Most of the photos are taken when I’m on the move, rushing to one place or another. The above photo is my favorite at the moment. It’s on the Morningside Road side of Saint John the Divine.  Oh!!! […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – click twice to fully enlarge) This is a picture post so I won’t blog anything except to say that wet met an interesting character last Sunday named Mr. Clack. That was the day I took those nice pics of Murphs Bar at South Street Seaport. One of the names Mr. Clack threw out at […]

Times Square

(Photos by Bald Punk) Since I started taking pictures for you, I’ve noticed so much more about the City. The other night when I took these, it hit me that Times Square is kind of ugly. I usually detour around it. NYC has so many incredible places to visit. Times Square is low on that list.  […]
