I'm not waiting on a lady...say, what the hell is Mick wearing anyway?

Yeah, we've all seen the video for "Waiting on a Friend" enough times...

However, we've never seen these photos taken by schillid when the Stones were shooting the video on St. Mark's Place in July 1981. (I found the photos at the It's Only Rock'n Roll Stones fan site.) Here, the boys hang out at the old St. Mark's Bar & Grill on the corner of First Avenue.

Here's what the corner looks like now.

Does anyone happen to have a picture of the blue neon sign that was outside the 1st Ave side of the bar, which I think replaced the one you see in the top picture ?
It said "Rock N Roll" on it.

I remember a few years later (mid to late 80s) the wall along St. Marks Place was painted with a Stones theme.
