Metropolis is located at 43 Third Avenue, just below East 10th Street. Two Ramones used to live across the block back in the day (Joey on East 9th Street, Johnny on East 10th Street), The Continental is just a block south, I live one block away… Yeah, it’s a great location.
I met the store owner (Richard Colligan) a few years ago, when he bought a vintage Ramones t-shirt from me off of eBay. His store is a passion project: He started selling pieces at flea markets in the mid-eighties and set up shop in the early nineties. Although most of that block has empty storefronts now, he's actually doing great business!
Stop by the store and buy something/anything: You’ll get a very useful shopping bag with my artwork on it!
