Ken Mac, I've been looking at your blog for a while, and I just want to say: I like your photos of New York so, so much more than being there! (I mean that in the nicest possible way -- I'm a New-York-o-phobe since childhood.) It's a wonderful blog -- thanks.

I like this little elbow of a street. It seems so accidental.

Ken...This photograph looks like it was taken in another country. Nice catch and great composition.

Your photos are always beautiful, but there is something about these last two that are really hitting a nerve with me. I always used to walk down this street & you captured exactly what it looks like on this type of sunny day.
It's funny that you mentioned how you didn't struggle with the last one. I think that's called talent.

This is a shot of Greenwich Village (I presume) that I have always heard about but never until now seen. So calm and peaceful....

When I lived in the Village in the 60's, Minetta Lane didn't look that nice. It was dirty and dark. Especially towards Bleecker Street.

Then, the Fat Black Pussy Cat entrance on Minetta was closed and boarded up. On the MacDougal side it was the Feenjohn.

Both were pretty rough places as I recall, and I only visited once. I have a friend up in Seattle who was a bartender at the Feenjohn in the late 50's early 60's. He has many stories about how the local mafia would shake down the owner of the cafe. Things calmed down later.

It's nice to see this little street in sunlight and colorful. It looks like a movie set now. Quite a discord from my memory. Thanks for the picture, Ken.

Which reminds me, I might have a pic of the FBPC here somewhere... I'll start looking.

Ken Mac said...

Thanks for that great history Richard!

One of my favorite streets in Manhattan. Good 'ol Subterranean Records used to be below on the right just out of the picture. From here and west to the Hudson have some of the greatest little streets in all of the city. Nice work.
