Chico is on a tear through the East Village lately. After creating an ad mural for soon-to-open Wafels & Dinges at Avenue B and East Houston, the beloved street artist went around the corner to Croxley Ales. And the latest artwork is not a commercial plug for a neighborhood business, rather an homage to punk pioneers the Ramones.
The security gate of Avenue B now boasts the cover art from the Ramones’ self-titled debut, originally released in April 1976.
As for Croxley Ales, the watering hole finally reopened after a construction debacle next door destabilized the whole building. Back in April, the FDNY evacuated 28 Avenue B after debris was reported falling from the fifth floor and a crack discovered that ran up the backside of the building.
