    5:00 pm To 8:00 pm

    Come out for the launch of the BLOCKS NYC Greenwich Village Coloring Book on October 15th at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC (41 West 8th Street) from 5-8pm!

    City BLOCKS Culture Collective explores and celebrates the architecture of neighborhoods throughout great cities, and showcases how historical landmarks have evolved and become part of the cultural landscape.

    This year, they’re exploring Greenwich Village with a coloring book that celebrates the rich musical history of the 60’s and 70’s folk rock scene.

    The BLOCKS NYC Coloring Book includes artist-illustrated pullout coloring pages of album covers that played a critical role in the 60’s and 70’s folk and rock scene in Greenwich Village, iconic buildings of musician’s haunts and studios, as well as some personal sketch and journal pages. Each page has an illustration by artist David Setrakian on the front and a story about the neighborhood on the back.

    Join them for a free walking tour of 60’s/70’s Greenwich Village folk scene with Bob Egan of PopSpots! This will be a one hour fun and informative tour of the coolest spots where musicians played and lived in one of the most important scenes in music.


    LOCATION: Please meet under the Washington Square Arch on Saturday October 15 at 3:45pm
    The tour will start at 4pm promptly and will end at The Lomography Gallery Store for the launch of the coloring book! Drinks and light snack will be available.

    No. 8, West 16th Street, NY, United States

    October 6, 2016 To October 7, 2016

    From Socialight Entertainment:

    Famous for its historical affairs, crimes of passion, and celebrated scandal, No. 8′s namesake – the renowned bungalow of the Beverly Hills Hotel – lends a reputation of mystery and intrigue. Aptly deemed the “No-Tell Motel” for its discretion, No. 8 caters to an international group of faithful habitués who value their privacy.

    No. 8 is a bi-level restaurant and lounge located in the heart of New York City’s thriving Chelsea art district. No.8 stands alone as a unique experience in the context of New York nightlife and culinary enjoyment created by Amy Sacco and brought to life by Bobby Rossi and LDV Hospitality.
