CBGB's Urinal Lives On!

(HeadbangerNYC.com) Have you wondered what happened to the urinal from CBGB after the legendary rock club closed? Well, it's safe and sound along with thousands of other music artifacts at the brand new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in SoHo. While the museum will officially open Dec. 2, the public can get a first look during preview tours starting today.

The 25,000-square feet mini-museum, costing $10 million, sits in the brick-walled basement of an Old Navy store at 76 Mercer Street.. It is the first time the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has extended its brand beyond the main museum in Cleveland, and New York City was the logical choice.

Illustrating this point is a 26-foot scale model of Manhattan located in the "New York Rocks" gallery, which lights up in 24 places marking key locations in NYC rock history. The room also contains a CBGB installation and articles of clothing and other artifacts from New York musicians like The Ramones, Blondie and Patti Smith. - HeadbangerNYC.com
