What's with people today, man?
A proposal to rename the corner shown on the Beastie Boys' album Paul's Boutique (pictured above) was voted down. The corner of Ludlow Street and Rivington Street is in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and the proposal would have had it co-named Beastie Boys Square.
A spokesperson for the board said:
"My decision was based on the fact that it did not meet the criteria and the fact that previously our most recent group of co-namings held each application to the high standard of meeting every single criteria we set out for co-namings."
Well, fine then.
