Terminal Bar

Short Film

This 2003 Sundance Jury Prize winner for short film explores the customers who frequented the Terminal Bar, a down-and-out watering hole in Times Square across the street from the Port Authority. Sheldon Nadelman, the bartender, shot over 1,500 black and white portraits during his ten year stint there from 1972-1982. The bar was owned by Murray Goldman, Sheldon’s father-in-law.
