This image of the late Joey Ramone wearing a pair of Boxing Gloves was created to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Ramones debuting at CBGB. The mural went up on September 3rd, 2015 but it took me a few weeks to get around to seeing it for the first time, in early October, which is when I took this photo while (literally) standing in the middle of the street between idling cars that were waiting for the light to change at the corner of Bleecker and the Bowery — directly across from the former location of the legendary music venue, which is now a John Varvatos Clothing Boutique. The mural was painted by Solus and John CRASH Matos, who you might remember from This Post.
Update: As of August 24th, 2017 The Joey Ramone Mural has been Replaced by a Mural of Blondie’s Debbie Harry.

Hey what’s up. Do you like tapas and also little sandwiches? I sure do. A few weeks ago I was introduced to this cool place on Bleecker Street called 100 Montaditos, which are little sandwiches that are not only extremely delicious but also very reasonably priced (i.e., cheap). And who doesn’t love a delicious bargain? You can bet that NYU students are all over this place. Because a good thing cannot be stopped, 100 Montaditos has just opened another, slightly more upscale location on Ludlow Street. Let me tell you why you need to check it out.
