2. CBGB

Address: 315 Bowery

While the renowned Bowery music club (whose name was an acronym for Country, Bluegrass, and Blues) unfortunately shuttered in late 2006, it'll always be remembered for hosting legendary punk and new wave pioneers like the Ramones, Blondie, and the Talking Heads, as well as one of the most notoriously grimy bathrooms in the country. Though the space is now occupied by a John Varvatos shop, the designer did his best to pay tribute to its previous occupant by preserving a good amount of the graffiti and artwork unleashed on the original walls.
