NEDICKS Times Sq. 1986

If you didn’t like their “Orange-Ade” you gotta love the old door handles that Nedick’s used. While we’re at it, I also like old storefronts with curved window glass…©Matt WeberNedicks-Books-TimesSq-Cropt

91st Street Subway Station 2015

I was surprised that this picture came out so well. Traveling fairly fast on an express train, and shooting through a dirty window, this really ain’t as bad as my grammar…

“Cycle Sluts From Hell Crossing the Deuce” 1988

I had to scan an old print, and one day I’ll scan the negative. This is the picture the band liked and if the fourth member had been in the photo, they might have used it for an album, at least that’s what I was told…

“The Cycle Sluts From Hell” 1988

The “Sluts” were a punk band and I recall they liked this picture…

Amsterdam Ave. 1970

If I ever publish a book about “Old New York” or “New York in Love” then this picture I took when I was twelve years old might be the cover…©Matt WeberAmsterdamAve-Ruleta-1969-70 copy

Under the Boardwalk 1989

Everybody has some thing they wished they took more pictures of. Having shot a lot at Coney Island, the fact that I only took two pictures below the boardwalk really annoys me. I had no way of knowing they’d fill it up with sand in 1991, but such is life…
