Atlas Obscura Explores the Location of Beastie Boys Album Cover for Paul's Boutique

Paul’s Boutique was the second album from the Beastie Boys, an album that was met with critical acclaim, but without commercial success.

The cover of the album showed a fictional storefront called Paul’s Boutique, but the photograph was taken at the very real intersection of Rivington and Ludlow in the Lower East Side.

A recent article on Atlas Obscura explores a bit about the location and album, and what the intersection looks like today.
