Point of View: Me, New York City, and the Punk Scene
Never not buying books about 1970s New York! Here’s a brilliant one on the New York downtown scene by Blondie’s Chris Stein. Point of View: Me, New York City, and the Punk Scene looks like a time capsule of New York at its run down, romanticized best, encompassing legendary characters (William Boroughs, Iggy Pop, Andy Warhol) amongst city streetscapes and New York nightlife.
We’ve just bought a new bookcase so I’m allowed to indulge my photo book habit again. And I know it’s way too early to mention the ‘C’ word, but this would be a perfect Christmas pressie for a similarly New York fixated music, culture and photography obsessive…
Point of View: Me, New York City, and the Punk Scene by Chris Stein is published by Rizzoli in October.

Punk scene in Britain and New York is fantastic to revisit anytime. Even Australia had a good visual punk scene. You would probably really like the movie Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat which shows the art scene with the punk/club scene.
