"For a brief shining moment (well, much of the 70's), before it got hopelessly commodified, SoHo was the place where New York's wandering tribe of Bohemians, visionary artists, enlightened slackers, daydreaming writers, and 24 hour party people took up precarious, sometimes illegal homesteading. Allan Tannebaum was there to document the scene with a combination of empathy, acuity and a feel for New York City cultural history that makes this work a valuable, lasting remembrance of things past."

--Ron Rosenbaum, author of The Secret Parts of Fortune and Explaining Hitler


"Allan Tannenbaum's photographs of the 1970s are as wildly entertaining and energetic as that wonderful and bizarre decade itself. They form an important visual history of a moment when American culture changed forever."

--David Schonauer, Editor of American Photo Magazine


"What Weegee was to photojournalism in the 1930s and 1940s; Allan Tannenbaum is to the 1970s. This volume of Tannenbaum's critical mass of New York's underside establishes him as one of the most important photographers of his time, in a city that has one of the most historic traditions of documentary photography."

--Miles Barth, Author of Weegee World and Independent Curator


The SoHo Weekly News, founded in 1973 and closed in 1982, covered events in New York City during a difficult but exciting time in the city's history. Based in SoHo, the art world was a primary concern, but coverage included the music scene, nightlife, fashion, politics, social issues, and lifestyle.
