Walking Tour - the History of Art, Crime, Drugs and Punk Rock on the Lower East Side with John Joseph
What was it about the Lower East Side that attracted so much talent and crime in the last 40 years? Since my early days of punk back in the summer of 1977 I've been exposed to some of the best music and the worst crime. Everything from Max's Kansas City to the Alphabet City Butcher Daniel Rakowitz who lived right above me and killed his girlfriend, chopped her up and fed her to the homeless in Tompkins Square Park. I was also in that park when the riot of 1988 kicked off and I played one of the last shows at CBGB's. Most people walking around on the Lower East Side today with its trendy boutiques and coffee shops have no idea of its history, the great music and violence that has always co-existed side by side down here. I'll take you to the punk clubs, gang hangouts and drug spots where some of the craziest things went down. It's a first hand account from someone who was immersed in the danger having myself grown up on the streets of NYC since the age of 14. I guarantee you it will be a true punk rock & crime history lesson from someone who was there way back then and is still here.
