See what’s become of CBGB, the famous music venue, opened in 1973 and shuttered in 2006, that launched punk rock via the Ramones. Today, not shockingly, it’s a John Varvatos boutique , where racks of rock-inspired $3000 leather jackets have supplanted scraggly headbangers. The old walls of fading posters and wild graffiti, though, remain untouched.
