Photographic History of the “Paul’s Boutique” Corner


1 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Two decades of changes to the corner made famous by the cover of The Beastie Boys’ much-heralded second album, as seen through photographs submitted by fans. Now nearly unrecognizable, maybe the most interesting thing to note is how unremarkable the change has been — the original ’Paul’s Boutique’ was a completely unassuming sporting goods store, and today it’s a completely unassuming shawarma and falafel joint named Three Monkeys.
