A Man Named Clack

Filed under Secrets of NYC, Stories

It’s been two weeks since my lady friend(LF) and I along with the pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts) saw the “Angel of New York” in Central Park. We’ve gone back to the exact spot more times than I care to admit. Plus we’ve scoured the park from 110th Street to 59th– My LF is digging […]

(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 […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – click twice to fully enlarge) In NYC we’re celebrating the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson sailing into our harbor. Yesterday I passed a small Dutch retrospective in Bowling Green Park on lower Broadway and took some pics for you. Two of the pics are straight up Broadway. Enlarge them to see the Chrysler Building, which is on […]

Best Bar No One ‘ANYWHERE’ Knows About

(Photos by Bald Punk – Murphs in South Street Seaport Mall) I hope I don’t need to explain this one. Though I will–in pictures. Btw, if you’re looking for a singles-type bar, there are a few in the Seaport Mall that might appeal to you. Otherwise, Murhs is great for chillin’ big-time. And you can’t go wrong at […]

Hi, I’m running out the door and want to make sure I post something. My goal is to not miss a day this month. In the coming weeks I want to focus on Historic NYC. Without getting too much into it right now, all I’ll say is that I think “Grace” has something to do with […]

Angel of New York

I was all over the City this past Sunday.   Canal Street was bumper to bumper traffic. The sidewalks were packed. If you looked away for a half-sec, you risked being trampled underfoot. When I headed uptown, all the bars on West Broadway had their doors flung open and music filled the air. Thompson Street was a little shady […]

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.  […]

(Tuba Skinny and His Tiny Men busking on Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn) My buddy Alberto Modino just saw Tubby Skinny in León, Spain. He said they are touring the country on bikes. Right now they are my favorite band of all time. It just stinks that they are so darn elusive. No website, no iTunes, no Facebook page that […]

THE GLOAMING HOUR

Filed under Photos, Secrets of NYC

(Photos by Bald Punk – Central Park)  The wildest and weirdest hour in NYC is the “gloaming.” There is no better place to experience it other than Central Park. “It’s a sensual treat,” my lady friend likes to say when we’re in the Park at twilight. Manhattan nights can be peculiar, especially on the rare occasions when something of Old New York seems […]

Empire State Building at Night

Filed under Photos

(Photos by Bald Punk) My camera doesn’t take such great pictures at night. I took about 100 pictures on all different settings and these are the only ones I can post. These photos I took in the daytime: Empire State Building. There are somethings that happened over the weekend that I want to tell you about. […]
