LES Attacked by Beatniks!

The corner of Rivington and Clinton has always been a weird place-- but this week it has gotten a whole lot weirder-- all of the surrounding buildings have been redone in the style of Haight-Ashbury in the 1960s. Apparently this is all for a movie entitled "Across the Universe." Get this-- it's a Beatles musical, and Bono is one of the stars! We are just as confused as you are. Why, if the movie is set in the Greenwich Village of the 1960s, is it all done out in freaky-deaky San Francisco acid trip paint? To get to the bottom of all of this, we stopped by the set today-- but we just ended up more confused. Check out the pictures at Bluejake, and read more on the redecoration at Curbed.
