In the 1950s and 1960s, folk music blossomed in New York City, particularly in Greenwich Village, the iconoclastic neighborhood that had long nurtured unconventional art and progressive politics. Folk City provides a rich, multimedia experience that will trace the revival's roots, its growth in New York, its major players and songwriters, and its impact on American politics and culture during the tumultuous 1960s.

Venue Description: Open 7 days a week, 10am-6pm. $10; $6, seniors/students; free, 12 & under.
