UNFORGOTTEN NEW YORK: LEGENDARY SPACES OF THE TWENTIETH-CENTURY AVANT-GARDE. David Brun-Lambert et al. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2015. 192 pp. with 195 ills. (158 col.). 29 x 25 cm. LC 2015-936427 ISBN 9783791381343 In English.
Publisher's description: If you lived in New York City in the 1950s, '60s, '70s, or '80s, you were likely enchanted by a particular, legendary place. Latenight spots like the Copacabana, Studio 54, The Mudd Club, or The Roxy; music venues such as CBGBs and the Village Vanguard; cutting-edge performance spaces such as The Kitchen and St. Mark's Church in the Bowery; social hangouts like the Gaslight Cafe and Keith Haring's Pop Shop. Many of these places are gone, but none are forgotten--and all are brought thrillingly back to life in this gorgeously designed volume. Poignant, insightful texts and both archival and new photography take readers inside more than 40 historical locations to see what made them so beloved back in the day and reveal what they look like now. Each chapter includes background history of the space, as well as quotes from famous artists, musicians, and other key players of the time. Together, these words and pictures comprise a bittersweet elegy for a city's iconic spaces and show the continued relevance of New York as a hotbed for the creation of popular culture.
