Heavy metal parking lot

Think of New York, and you're probably imagining noise, bustle and congestion (of people and traffic). Which is precisely what makes Langdon Clay's photos of deserted city streets and particularly the cars temporarily or permanently abandoned on them so arresting.

The pictures also help to convey the grime and grubbiness of 1970s New York - the one that spawned the legendary punk scene that the Talking Heads' Chris Frantz recently spoke to the New York Post about.
