Read from the Book

This is your invitation to explore the city through wraparound shades, as it was experienced by the Velvet Underground and their circle in the mid 1960s.We have traced 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.The New York of today is a radically different place to the city the Velvet Underground knew; this guide is your opportunity to view it as they did.
