Beastie Boys “Paul’s Boutique” Mural Painted In NYC’s LES

Paul’s Boutique, celebrating its 25th anniversary, has cause for more celebration. The Beastie Boys‘ album is being celebrated with a mural in progress on the corner of Rivington and Ludlow at the original location of “Lee’s Sportswear,” which is the shop shown on the album cover.

The mural was completed by an artist out of Brooklyn, Danielle Mastrion, and was commissioned by LeRoy McCarthy (if you’re not familiar with LeRoy McCarthy, you can read up on him and his efforts to rename hip hop landmarks around  New York City HERE)

This is a dope win for the legacy of the Beastie Boys, following the unsuccessful campaign to re-name the very intersection where the tribute lies to “Beastie Boys Square,” late last year.

Check out the mural below. RIP “MCA”
