This small store is called Physical Graffiti, a vintage clothing boutique located at 96 St. Mark's Place. This brownstone building was photographed for a cover of Led Zeppelin's 1975 album, "Physical Graffiti," and was also used for a Rolling Stones' 1981 music video, "Waiting on a Friend." St. Mark's Place is a street in the East Village of Manhattan. Named after St. Mark's Church, which was built on Stuyvesant Street but is now on 10th Street, St. Mark's Place has long hosted alternative retailers, appealing in recent years particularly to suburban teenagers. The street is lined by institutions like Yaffa Café, Crif Dogs and St. Mark's Hotel as well as a number of authentic Japanese restaurants, bars, and many record stores with rare and competitively priced merchandise.
