Thursday's parting shot

After a nine-year effort, the intersection of Ludlow and Rivington on the LES will be named Beastie Boys Square... City Council approved the naming today. (The Post and Crain's have the story.) 

As noted before, the former clothing store on the corner served as the backdrop for 1989's "Paul's Boutique." 

LeRoy McCarthy has been behind this co-naming push. Brooklyn-based artist Danielle Mastrion created the original BB mural in 2014.

Congrats - I think its great The BB get some recognition in the LES - amazing it took so long for the CB 3 to wake up to the significance of the BB impact on the hip-hop scene

That number is 718-498-1043. That’s Paul’s a boutique and we’re in Brooklyn.
