The Fillmore East

I ran across an area that I’m told is the old Fillmore East.

Wow.

It’s located on 2nd Avenue and 6th Street in the East Village.

It’s now a Emigrant Savings Bank location.  It looks like it may have been torn down and reconstructed, and I’m told parts of it are apartments now.  Everyone who was anyone in rock played there.  Well, at least old rock and roll.  The Allman Brothers, Jefferson Airplane, Doors, Led Zeppelin…the list goes on and on.

What I do know is that when I was a kid, the Fillmore East was supposed to be the coolest place anywhere.  I was a long, long ways away (actually in Okinawa) and never dreamed that I’d visit.

And I guess I didn’t.  Maybe I can go in and use the ATM.
