This nice homage to the late Adam Yauch, AKA MCA of The Beastie Boys, was spotted by me one afternoon as I was walking home. I am not sure how long it has been up, but it is at least the fifth such mural in a series created to honor Yauch — who died of cancer on May 4th, 2012, at age 47— that’s inhabited this exact location on some kind of heavily-chained door. You can see a few of the other past murals at This Link. The artist is Cramcept. I have no idea what’s behind the door.
The Where Have You Been MCA Mural is Located on the South Side of East 7th Street Just West of First Avenue in NYC’s East Village.
