    Greeeen-Witch Village; memory insists that the Pink Pussycat Boutique was on 7th Av. S. near Bleecker, but memory has been wrong before.

    No idea. But I would expect somewhere in Greenwhich Village.

    I would have to guess Saint Mark’s Place in Manhattan.

    Sex, drugs and rock and roll? I’d say you were in heaven or at least the ’60’s section.

  18. Tal Barzilai says:

    Is this in the East Village?

  19. Mike says:

    It is definitely West 4th, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
    Check out the Google Street View of the place.
    There are a couple girls hanging out in front.

  20. Darryl Screven says:

    Most definitely West 4th Street just of a Jones Street and west of Sixth Ave.

  21. Tal Barzilai says:

    Maybe it’s about time we have the answer for this.

  22. Ed Unneland says:

    I could be wrong, but I think it’s E. 7th St.

    Ah, the Pink Pussy Cat on W 4th St., one of the oldest sex shops in NYC, possibly the first, the other very old one being the Pleasure Chest on 7th Ave. Does anyone know which was first? A bit of a culture shock when these two opened, even in the traditionally nonconformist West Village, when publicly marketing sex accessories was something new..

    This is the store where I found the most precious peniform erasers made to slip onto the back of a pencil. Exactly the right size for me to fabricate an anatomically-correct Ken to match up with Barbie for a set of very funny tabletop photos I shot a few years ago. I showed ’em at BWAC and did get a few complaints that my humor was too strong for general audiences. Perhaps because one of my participants was a blue action figure who was not quite human, but was designed with a hand intended to grasp a weapon. So I set up Monsterman to grasp Ken’s “weapon,” it was a perfect fit, and had trouble holding the camera steady because I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Now, does anyone else remember the very first head shop, the Psychedelicatessen, on Ave A? I think it was 1966, when I was a lightshow artist, that photographer John Swede converted his storefront studio into the world’s first rather casual adventure into stoned marketing.

  24. John A. says:

    West 4th just west of 6th. Music Inn has been at that since the late 60s. You use to actually be able to shop there, but the owner has basically walled himself in with stuff …

  25. Positively 4th Street, just doors away from Bob Dylan’s first apartment.

    I think the SPAM is starting to roll in Kevin
