Summary
"Terminal Bar is an extraordinary collection of black-and-white portraits of customers who patronized New York City's most notorious dive bar--now long gone, once across the street from Port Authority--during the 1970s, before the area was redeveloped. Shelly Nadelman, the bartender there from 1972 to 1982, shot thousands of photographs, mostly of his customers. Clientele included a unique mix of Irish regulars, bartenders, porters, and concession stand workers, pimps and prostitutes, drag queens and cross dressers. Featuring two hundred photographs with captions by the photographer, this book will appeal to everyone interested in the bygone era of Times Square and 1970s New York. What makes Terminal Bar unique is not just the fact that this portraiture project spans a decade and documents a close-knit community during a pivotal moment in cultural history, but that it's a family collaboration: the bar was owned by Sheldon's father-in-law and the book is coauthored by Sheldon's son, Stefan"--
