I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday Tribeca Music and Arts Tour

We were given a free Tribeca Music and Arts Tour for review purposes. Any and all opinions
expressed here are our own.

What: Tribeca Music and Arts Tour

Where: Tours Starts at 49 Crosby St., New York, NY

Who: Teens and Up

When: Check website at https://www.nycmusicwalkingtour.com/ for tour dates.


Mom's view: If you  are interested in music and art in New York City and particularly the history of the music and art scene in  the Tribeca area, you may enjoy a Tribeca Music and Arts Tour. The tour focuses mainly on the club scene so if you are interested in that you will love this tour. On the tour you will visit such locations as the former site of the Mudd Club, where you will learn about its connection to the assassination of President Lincoln, and the American Thread Company building, where a renovation of the building uncovered an early work of Keith Haring. You will also visit numerous other locations where famous clubs were formerly located and  many well known bands and musicians played before (and sometimes even after) they became famous. You will visit some locations related to famous artists and even a few famous movie locations as well.  Even if you are not  particularly a fan of music or art, it is still interesting to learn about the history of music and the clubs during this period of time in New York City. Unfortunately, most of the locations visited on the tour are no longer the  music related venues that they once were so you will mostly get to visit the locations and not the actual venues.  However, the tour guide, Joshua carries an  iPad, and he will show you actual pictures of the venues as they looked in their heyday so that you won't quite have to picture everything in your head. Joshua is also very knowledgable about his subject and has a good and friendly personality which makes this a very fun and fascinating tour.  This is not a good tour for the very young or anyone who is only interested in current artists, however, anyone willing or wishing to take a step back into musical history should enjoy it.
