From 1972-1982, Sheldon Nadelman tender bar at Terminal Bar in Times Square, across from Port Authority. Over those ten years, he took more than 2000 black and white photos that were made into a 22-minute documentary in 2002. Since then, 3 more vignettes have been produced using interviews with Nadelman and his photographs. All together, they document a Times Square that is almost unrecognizable from what you’ll find today (and way more interesting). Find out more about Nadleman and the productions at Tourist Pictures.

Apparently it’s all a part of his promotion for his new album, aptly titled “New.” He also played a show at a school in Queens yesterday and was on Jimmy Fallon the night before.
Photographer Stephen Wilkes creates remarkable images of night and day at once by setting up his camera to take pictures of a single scene over and over for 15 hours. He then blends the images to get this time-defying effect… Facebook cover photos for all!
