Here is the new Beastie Boys mural in honor of 'Paul's Boutique'
This Beastie Boys mural went up this weekend on Ludlow and Rivington.
As you may have read, the mural is in honor of their second record, "Paul's Boutique," which is celebrating its 25th (!!!) anniversary.
Brooklyn-based artist Danielle Mastrion created the mural outside Wolfnights, the sandwich shop on this corner. LeRoy McCarthy, who unsuccessfully lobbied for "Beastie Boys Square" here, is also behind this project.
The storefront was once home to Lee's Sportswear, which appeared on the cover of "Paul's Boutique."
Thanks to EVG Facebook friend Shirley Dluginski for the new mural photo!
