[Ori Carino with Mickey Leigh]
On Sunday afternoon, East Village-based artist Ori Carino unveiled a new mural at the "Thorneycroft Ramp" in Forest Hills, Queens. The ceremony was part of a day of events organized by the Queens Museum, which is currently showing "Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk."
Carino painted the image of the four Ramones at the ramp based on a 1975 photograph by photographer Bob Gruen.
Presiding over the unveiling was musician and author Mickey Leigh (brother of Joey Ramone), who recalled times spent at the ramp in his 2009 memoir, I Slept with Joey Ramone: "We’d always wind up at Thorneycroft, the apartment complex across the street from John's [Johnny Ramone] building...Invariably everyone would meet up at the Ramp to shoot the shit, pull pranks, hide from the cops, and of course get high."

The exhibition "Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!" is on view at the Queens Museum through July 31.
