New York City – where music dreams are made reality
Frank Sinatra rightly said: “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” With such a tagline embracing the city, it is not surprising that people from around the country, and around the globe, have come to NYC to try and make it, hoping their big break would come about here. Musicians have made their way to the city that never sleeps, all in the hopes of becoming legends, and many have left legacies that remain rooted in the streets of the city, especially rock music. With names like Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Ramones, among others, lining the New York Musical Hall of Fame, it can be a daunting task to trace the journey of music through NYC. A private tour guide from CityWalksNY will help you explore the treasured history of Rock and Roll in New York City.
Discover the legends of Rock n Roll and the legacies they left behind
Amongst the millions of people that have moved to the city in pursuit of their dreams, only a few manage to stand out from the crowd and achieve legendary status. Any rock aficionado immediately recognizes names such as John Lennon, New York Dolls and Iggy Pop. What do these, and other big names, have in common? New York City. More specifically, Greenwich Village, a hotbed for bohemians throughout a better part of the 20th century. While the aforementioned musicians have moved on, their impact remains on not just the industry, but in the spaces they occupied, the venues they played, and the experiences they imparted in the neighborhood. And a new crop of aspiring stars have since taken their place, such as Bruce Springsteen and Lady Gaga. CBGB, the club that held concerts for numerous punk rock bands over the years, including The Ramones and Blondie, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places, and is just one of many places your private tour guide will show you along the way.
Experience history firsthand in the same places where Rock n Roll left its mark
Yet, there is more to be discovered for rock and roll lovers in NYC. CityWalksNY can show you more through a custom tour of the city, including Strawberry Fields, John Lennon’s beautiful memorial in Central Park, and an exploration of the musical history of Greenwich Village, boasting such names as Bob Dylan and Paul Simon.
Music has changed many lives in this amazing city where legends are made and legacies are created. Experience a musical journey unlike any other with the CityWalksNY Rock n Roll private tour. A private tour will point out everything you need to know and everything you must see.
