Spot the Proud New Yorkers in the New Joey Ramone Video, ‘New York City’

Check out the newly released video for “New York City,” off of Joey Ramone’s posthumous album “…Ya Know?” It starts with a stroll down 10th Street, from Avenue D to Third Avenue, rounds the corner at the St. Mark’s Bookshop, and heads all the way down the Bowery and eventually all the way up to Times Square and into Joey’s native borough of Queens. A slew of well-known New Yorkers make appearances, starting with Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh. At one point, Ramones drummer and producer Tommy Ramone pops up holding a “Joey Ramone Place” sign, as does celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

You’ll also spot Godlis, whose photos of the Ramones and St. Marks apartment have appeared on this site; Ed Stasium, producer of Ramones albums, and John Holmstrom, illustrator of their covers; Suzy Hotrod of Gotham Girls Roller Derby; actor-comedians Reggie Watts, Kristen Schaal, John Lutz, and Scott Adsit; and musicians Andrew W.K., Tim Harrington of Les Savy Fav, Jonathan Pierce of The Drums, Tish and Snooky Bellomo of the Stilletto Fads, J.P. Patterson and Andy Shernoff of the Dictators, Ricky Byrd of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Sonya Balchandani of the Big Sleep, Erick Arc Elliott of the Flatbush Zombies, and Matt and Kim.

The Pyramid Club and bygone after-hours Save the Robots also get shout-outs – and look out for a clay model of the Astor cube. Recognize anyone or anything else in the video? ID them in the comments.
