The High, The Low

Meatpacking district, 2007. This is now a faux German "Biergarten." Say goodbye to grit, grime, and those disgusting homeless people...and a City's soul.

Lenox Lounge to close

Lenox Lounge is a long-standing Harlem bar. It was founded in 1939 and served as venue for performances by Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. Harlem Renaissance writers James Baldwin and Langston Hughes were both patrons, as was Malcolm X. The Lenox Lounge featured as the hang-out of Detective John Shaft in the 2000 remake of the film Shaft. Both the exterior facade and interior of Lenox Lounge were featured in the film American Gangster. In one scene Denzel Washington's character, Frank Lucas, meets with Nicky Barnes, played by Cuba Gooding Jr., in the renowned Zebra Room at the Lenox Lounge. Lenox Lounge has also been featured in AMC's Mad Men. Last drink to be served New Year's Eve. New York...disappearing...fade to black.. Richard Notar, Managing Partner in Nobu Restaurants, will be taking over and plans to open a new spot named "Notar Jazz Club." Former owner will remove and take all signage.

Thank you

Thank you everyone for your prayers and well wishes. Power has returned in lower Manhattan but places elsewhere in the city and New Jersey are still in the dark and hurting. It has been a photographer's dream to wander the streets of Manhattan under the veil of blackness, though ultimately this has been a horrific event.
