Beastie BoysBeastie Boys

"At a meeting on Tuesday night, LeRoy McCarthy was told that he will have to get more signatures on his petition before a Manhattan community board will vote on his request to name a street after the New York hip-hop trio.

McCarthy wants to rename the corner of Ludlow and Rivington streets on the Lower East Side "Beastie Boys Square", 1010 WINS' Sonia Rincon reported.

The intersection of Ludlow and Rivington is featured on the cover of the group's second album "Paul's Boutique"." [CBS]

LeRoy plans to continue fighting (for his right to try and name a street). Sign the petition HERE.

I refer to the intersection of N. 7th & Bedford as 'Hummus Square'.

Would it be a square that is owned by said Beastie Boys? I'm just wondering. Should that be the case ... it really needs to be named: Beastie Boys' Square. Possessive plural, bitches.

Hey why not re-mane every piece of street that a famous album cover was photographed on in NYC? Led Zeppelin Way, The Doors Alley, Steely Dan Blvd, Bob Dylan Street, Ramones Alley, The Who Park, etc etc etc...

I'm all for naming streets and parks after musicians, but there's already an Adam Yauch park. can we name something after a non-white rapper, please?

Ok. From now on let's call Bryant Park "DJ Khaled Park." It's fits your criteria.

Just because an album cover was shot there doesn't mean it should be re-named after the group. Is there any other important connection to that spot? Did they live there? Did they rehearse there? Did they write all their songs there? Were They born there? Did they go to school there? No No no no no no.

that whole area should be re-named "Midwestern Frat Party Land"
and there should be a logo of puke and the visual representation of despair on every street sign.
