Greenwich Village and the East Village Rock Tour

Thursday, July 14 at 6:00pm ET


In-Person, pre-registration is required. Limited spaces remain.

Starting and ending location will be shared with registrants at least 48 hours prior to the start of the program.

Rock n’ roll has been deeply rooted in our neighborhoods since the art form was first invented, with many of its greatest practitioners drawn here to live or perform, while others had their careers launched here. 

From the Ramones to Buddy Holly, and Nirvana to Elvis, our neighborhood is lined with the buildings that opened their doors to these icons of rock n’ roll. Songs such as The Ramone’s “I Just Wanna Have Something to Do” reference the exact spots in our neighborhoods. 

The venues that once set the stage for legendary bands may be of the past, but the buildings still stand in the present. Follow the Village Preservation team as we guide you through the architectural history of Rock N’ Roll and uncover the star-studded background of our streets.
