New Yorker LeRoy McCarthy is on a mission to name the intersection where the Beastie Boys’ album cover for Paul’s Boutique was photographed to “Beastie Boys Square”.
McCarthy, a film location scout who previously worked for a record label in Atlanta, has gathered nearly 20 signatures so far on a petition for the Beastie Boys co-naming. Eight of the nine businesses on Rivington and Ludlow have signed thus far.
“I think that the Lower East Side, what it used to be, is a good place to honor the Beastie Boys,” said McCarthy, “I think the Beastie Boys represent New York in a certain way,” He hopes to present his proposal to Community Board 3 soon.
