NYC: Beastie Boys Paul’s Boutique Mural at the Original Location

“The best in men’s clothing.  Call Paul’s Boutique, and ask for Janice….”

Paul’s Boutique, from the Beastie Boys, is one of my favorite records.  Produced by the Dust Brothers at a time when samples didn’t need to be cleared, this masterpiece is the type of album you play from start to finish.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the record, a mural was painted at the very storefront seen on the cover of the album.  It is located at the corner of Rivington and Ludlow in New York City, and it looks a little different nowadays, but it is still recognizable.
