Last Fight on Film

fight-subway-nyc-matt-weberHe kept yelling at the white guy “You’re a serial fellatio addict!” “You constantly commit fellatio on hundreds of men, all the time!” You commit fellatio” “fellatio lover!” And then eventually the poor guy who’d been circled by this homophobic idiot like a wolf, yelled back at him “I do commit fellatio all the time!” “That’s right, I am a British Cigarette!”

 

See how hard it is not to use profanity on occasions like this?

 

After their verbal exchange, the doors on the subway to the left of them opened, and the black guy shoved the “British Cigarette” through the doors where he collapsed into a crumpled ball. I did press the shutter but nothing happened.

The camera refused to take a picture!

Once again, I had run out of film…

“The Minnesota Strip” 1989

Back in the 1970s the stretch on 8th Ave. north of the port authority, was called “The Minnesota Strip” because of the large amount of runaway teens (from the mid-west) that would get off the bus and wander up 8th Ave. Often these kids were preyed upon instantly as they got off the Greyhound bus by the local pimps, and within days they were selling their bodies for their new employers…

“Undercovers Roughing up a Woman” 1987

PoliceBustWoman-1987 copyI can’t stand when the cops push around a woman like this. I know they probably found some weed or coke on her, but there’s FIVE of them and one of them thinks he’s the second coming of Serpico. Before video was everywhere, I saw people routinely tossed around like rag dolls by New York’s finest. I guess it’s a little better these days thanks to “everyman” and the Iphone…

“Minor Mayhem” Spanish Harlem 1986

I didn’t take many pictures in East Harlem and I was surprised to find this one…It includes the famous Italian restaurant Patsy’s. I never ate there but its suppose to have the best pizza money can buy…
