Well, that certainly didn’t take long.
In exceptionally short order, both master location-spotters Bob Egan and Chung Wong chimed in(Chung on Facebook) in with the readily evident details that the estimable brothers Ramone were captured by Bob Gruen standing manfully on the south side of East 1st Street between Bowery and Second Avenue, …i.e. ACROSS THE STREET AND A FEW STEPS TO THE WEST OF THE VERY SPOT that Joe Dilworth would photograph the Lunachicks fifteen years later.
The giveaway for me should have been the vertical “PARKING” signage at the far left-hand side of the frame, which matches up with this old image of Extra Place.
For another vantage, point, the Ramones are basically standing directly across the street from where Lou Reed and then-wife Sylvia Morales are pictured here in a still from the video of “Sweet Jane” by the Jim Carroll Band.
Which is essentially just around the corner from the lot that was adjacent 295 Bowery (which I captured here)...
Obviously, that spot today bears no resemblance to its former incarnation....
Well done, all … onto the next one.
