Today in 2003: Joey Ramone Place Dedicated
The street sign is one of the most sought after in the city. Joey Ramone Place at the corner of Bowery and Second Street, now just a stone’s throw from Peels, where you can order his eponymous cocktail. Since 2003, the green marker has been stolen a whopping four times, prompting the Department of Transportation to hoist it twenty feet high in recent months.

Seven years ago today, the city unveiled the new sign for the legendary punk frontman and Forest Hills native who tragically died of lymphatic cancer in 2001. The birthplace of punk is right here, where you can now rent a penthouse in the glass-box Avalon Bowery for $3,820 per month.
