Fire at Paul’s Boutique

written by: on January 21, 2011

The building on the cover of the Beastie Boys’ iconic album Paul’s Boutique caught fire last night. Located at Rivington and Ludlow streets in lower Manhattan, last night’s fire is still from unknown causes. Although no longer Paul’s Boutique (or any boutique – the building is now home to a restaurant called The Three Monkeys), it is still a place of note in music history and is definitely a bummer for the Lower East Side.

In better news, the Beastie’s new album Hot Sauce Committee pt. 2 is slated for release this year. So we all have that to look forward to.
