No, it’s not the latest location of CBGB Newark Airport.
Flood, the street artist best known for throwing up damning images of Fat Albert, was back it today, this time slapping up a tribute to CBs at the corner of Ludlow and Stanton. On the left is Adam “MCA” Yauch of the Beastie Boys, a “hero” of Flood’s, and on the right is Raymond “Raybeez” Barbieri from LES hardcore band Warzone, whom Flood described as “the dad of the scene. He really took care of us.” Looking over them is Hilly Kristal. “Thousands of us kids here in New York had nowhere to go or play or anything,” Flood said of Kristal. “This guy gave it to us.”
