For some people, off beat roadside attractions are what road trips are made of, but for others its historical locations. So, how about getting the best of both worlds and seeking out lyrical locations?

Visit the location where this photograph was taken, on 52nd Street! You can see what this corner looked like in 1978 but, what does it look like today? Then, strike your own pose ala Billy Joel for the ‘shot.’

The kids over at PopSpots will get you started in the right direction while in NYC. They’ve matched these cool pop culture locations with maps, photographs and GPS information. Then they’ve created an overlay to show the exact then and now locations, making finding the spots a cinch. Check out PopSpots’ NYC lyrical locations for album covers from Billy Joel, Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and more.

Pictured here is the album cover from Billy Joel’s 52nd Street Record. Released October 13, 1978 by Columbia Records/CBS Inc. Cover photo by Jim Houghton.
