Tomorrow (Sunday!), employees from Webb's former boutique, I Need More, will be on St. Mark's Place to collect more signatures to co-name the block between Second Avenue and Third Avenue Jimmy Webb Place
Webb, a familiar figure in the East Village during his long tenure as the manager and buyer at Trash & Vaudeville, died on April 14 of cancer. He was 62.
He started working at his dream destination, Trash & Vaudeville, in 1999, and remained there until the shop relocated from 4 St. Mark's Place to Seventh Street in 2016. He opened I Need More on Orchard Street in October 2017. That store closed this past summer.
