#96 & #98 St. Mark’s Place

I missed my flight back to Cincinnati and spent another day in New York.

Made a wide looping from trip from Brooklyn into the city to take this photo on St. Mark’s Place before heading back to out to the airport.

The street in the East Village is storied, setting the backdrop for many artists, musicians, poets and writers throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

The particular set of buildings above became the cover of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti. (It’s also the place where Mick Jagger and Keith Richard were “Waiting on a Friend” in that Rolling Stones video.)

Lots of other stuff went on here, and I’m not entirely sure why I needed to make this pilgrimage, but I did.
