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.
