For the Records: The Legacy and Lessons of Bleecker Bob’s

A documentary film screening

When Bob Plotnik quit law to open up a record store in Greenwich Village in the ’60s, the only thing he wanted was to get hold of his favorite street doo-wop records ahead of everyone else. And though “Bleecker Bob” is identified with some of the great names of rock and roll through the decades, time has run out for the oldest record store in the Village.

For the Records, a documentary film by Emily Judem and Hazel Sheffield, explores the nature of change and development in an urban setting. The film screening will be followed by a discussion with Ms. Judem.

We are pleased to be able to offer this screening again. Preference is given to those who were turned away last time we presented this program. Co-sponsored by The New School for Public Engagement. A Special encore presentation
