West 4th Street between Jones & Cornelia in Greenwich Village.
Are you on 8th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues?
West 4th street
Can it be anyplace but West 4th Street, west of 6th Avenue?
No idea where you are at but the street sign and the store sign make a funny combination!
St. Marks Pl.
West 4th Street just passed Corneila street west of 6th ane NYC!!!!
West 4 Street, west of 6th Avenue
West 4th Street in the Village
West 4th, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
167-169 W. 4th St, Greenwich Village
Greeeen-Witch Village; memory insists that the Pink Pussycat Boutique was on 7th Av. S. near Bleecker, but memory has been wrong before.
They had a second store there for a while. The one on West 4th was first.
No idea. But I would expect somewhere in Greenwhich Village.
I would have to guess Saint Mark’s Place in Manhattan.
First thing I thought of was 5th ave. Park Slope, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Just noticed the van. It’s facing the wrong way. Oh well.
4th Street is a one way street. Van is facing the right way.
Sex, drugs and rock and roll? I’d say you were in heaven or at least the ’60′s section.
Is this in the East Village?
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.
Most definitely West 4th Street just of a Jones Street and west of Sixth Ave.
Maybe it’s about time we have the answer for this.
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.
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 …
Positively 4th Street, just doors away from Bob Dylan’s first apartment.
I think the SPAM is starting to roll in Kevin
