“Physical Graffiti” Cover, New York City, NY

LZ

To a lot of people, this is just a picture of two brownstones. But Led Zeppelin fans will immediately recognize them from the cover of “Physical Graffiti,” the group’s sixth album that was critically acclaimed and sold 8 million copies.  The opening scene of the Rolling Stones’ “Waiting on a Friend” video was also filmed here. The buildings are in an area of the East Village in Manhattan that is a cultural hub, lined with stores, restaurants, clubs, hotels, and theaters. The street has appeared on albums, in lyrics, and in TV and film. Visited November 2008.

Location: 96-98 St. Mark’s Place (8th Street), between First Avenue and Avenue A
