Above, a 1934 plaque from the Big Apple Night Club at West 135th Street and Seventh Avenue in Harlem. Discarded as trash in 2006. Now a Popeye's fast food restaurant on Google Maps.

“Olympia, WA” (1995) ("52nd and Broadway” lyric)
"Olympia, WA" by the punk band Rancid was on their album ...And Out Come the Wolves (1995). The lyrics mention the corner of 52nd Street and Broadway. Someone should tell Rancid that "Big Apple Corner" is 54th Street and Broadway.

We clearly need another Rancid song. This stinks.
