Just got back from CBGB's, where the City Of New York officially proclaimed 11/30/2003 to be Joey Ramone Day. There was an hour of speeches from friends & family of Joey Ramone including Tommy & Marky Ramone (pictured), Joey's mother, brother, & uncle, Hilly Kristal, Legs McNeil & John Holmstrom of Punk Magazine, Little Steven, Chris Frantz & Tina Weymouth of the Talking Heads, Jim Jarmusch, Lenny Kaye, and quite a few others. Then a representative of the Borough President of Manhattan presented Joey's mother with the proclamation, after which were speeches delivered by two members of the City Council. Afterward, everyone went outside for the unveiling of the new sign. The sign was originally supposed to read 'Joey Ramone Place,' then it was changed due to some error somewhere to 'Joey Ramone Way,' but that error was corrected. The weather was nice, & the good vibes were overwhelming.

Joey Ramone Place: on the corner of the Bowery & 2nd Street, right by CBGB's.

Everyday is Joey Ramone day. Looks like fun. One of the only times I regret not being in NY.

Thanks for the pics.
