« Chumley's in Name Only | Main | Scum Gave All: Exhuming NYC Scumrock! »

August 08, 2016



Definitely not London, as there's a Schaefer Beer sign in the window.

Agreed it does look like a New York storefront.

Yes--Martin beat me to it, re: the Schaefer Beer sign.

I zoomed in to get a look at the menu and that's definitely NYC diner fare.

I pissed off a lot of people I knew at the time JH-S passed because I took that one harder than I did John Lennon's passing, strictly due to the lost potential.


I'm almost certain the address in this photo is 54 E. 1st St. It is most recently the location of Prune restaurant. If you do a Google Street view you'll see that the building on the left still has the same architectural details around the ground floor and above the windows.


It was on 36th Street between 7th and 8th Ave, NYC. It later became Waves, before it closed down altogether in 1988. I spent many a drunken night in that bar, and used to smoke joints where Chrissie is standing.
