To honor Beastie Boys with the co-naming of Ludlow Street and Rivington Street corner in Manhattan, NY to Beastie Boys Square.

The Beastie Boys are: Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch (RIP). Aside for spanning genres  of music over their 30+ year career, Beastie Boys, along with RUN DMC, were pioneers in expanding exchanges culturally in NYC, and worldwide. 

The second album from Beastie Boys, Paul's Boutique was photographed at the intersection of Ludlow Street and Rivington Street. In the panoramic photograph it captured the vibrancy of the ever-changing life on the streets of NYC. The album, released July 25th 1989, was groundbreaking, and it encompassed these Boys from NYC, rapping about life and times from their point of view. Because of the album cover photo, and the Beastie Boys were ever-changing NYC artist, the location of Ludlow Street and Rivington Street would be a great place to honor Beastie Boys with a corner co-naming.

Please sign and share the Beastie Boys Square petition. Thank you.
