While it's still there this time, scoot over to East 2nd and Bowery to check out the big-among-petty-thieves Joey Ramone Place sign, one of the more popular of recent commemorative renamings, especially among fans of the Ramones. Blogger Extrawack notices what might be some strategic placement:
This one is way high up on the pole, high enough that it would take three drunken punk rock fans standing on each other's leather jacketed shoulders to swipe.Which reminds us of a story we heard that said there are so many such renamed streets and corners around town that the City of New York doesn't even keep track of them all. Sounds like a latent Google Maps mashup idea, right?
