This one didn’t seem to take long at all.
Alas, I wasn’t entirely correct with my guess of Greene Street just south of Broome. Longtime reader/friend Chung Wong was technically the first to chime in with Greene and Grand Street, and Bob Egan of PopSpots also weighed in with the same answer. In typical form, Bob also showed his work….
Today, with the intention of going to pick up some items at soon-to-vanish Pearl River on Mercer Street (well, technically it’s on Broadway, but I prefer the Mercer Street entrance), I swung over to Greene to verify the sleuth work.
It looks indeed like Lynn Goldsmith shot this lovely photograph of Todd Rundgren in 1983 on the southwest corner of Greene Street at Grand. Here it was this afternoon.....
Usually, I have my kids star in the photo replications, but … they’re at school, so you’re stuck with me. In hindsight, squeezing my 47-year-old frame into a vintage, form-fitting Sisters of Mercy t-shirt and donning my requisite pair of sunglasses only serves to make me resemble Simon Pegg’s protagonist in “The World’s End,” but some things just can’t be helped, alas.
Here’s a bit more Todd….
