During their brief existence the Velvet Underground lived, played and recorded around their home city of New York. Now, for the first time, all the significant NYC locations have been charted in one place.
Our guide traces the members’ steps from Long Island to the Lower East Side and up to Harlem, noting apartments, rehearsal spaces, recording studios, stopping-off points on late-night rambles and, of course, the cornerstones of their legend: the Factory, the Dom, the Gymnasium and Max’s.
Printed with a shiny, shiny foiled cover for that Factory feel.
About Herb Lester Guides
Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, these just tell you how to enjoy it. They aim to show the reader what makes a place distinctive, to shed light on obscure locations as well as revisiting well-known ones with a fresh perspective.Each city is researched the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. That research is turned into a compact guide with enough suggestions to keep you entertained, with a list of shops, bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, museums and parks, each one carefully described.
