The Real Locations Of Famous Album Covers

Pop culture detective Bob Egan has tracked down the locations of famous album covers, using modern-day tools such as Google Street View.

It all started with the album cover for Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush. After some impressive detective work and even a note to the original photographer, Bob was able to track down the exact corner in New York City where the album cover was shot.

So off he went, with the original vinyl album cover in hand. The result? A terrific blog post on his site, and a picture to preserve the memory. What a great way to explore a city!
