Paul's Boutique

Last weekend, after listening to the newly remastered version of the Beastie Boy's Paul's Boutique cd we wound up strolling past the corner of Ludlow & Rivington Streets where the cover photography was taken in 1989 when the album was first released. I snapped some shots of those same 4 corners. Matching up the new photos to the old was not easy. Unfortunately I don't have a wide angle lens, making it more difficult and less satisfying. I hope somebody else, with a better camera, would take up this challenge. (Also, the original album photos are not all clear, scans are below)

In any case, here are the results.

Southwest corner:

Southeast corner:

Northeast corner:

Northwest corner:

Ah yes, sanitized and safe for suburban consumption. Nice work, btw.
If you are ever in the market for a new digi-cam, I love my wide-angle Lumix and it only set me back $149.
