We're biased, we know, but New York is the capital city of the world for rock & roll (check out our list of the 100 best NYC songs for proof), and one of its true golden eras was in the late '60s and early '70s. Hot on the heels of Lynn Goldsmith's "Streets of NYC" show, the Morrison Hotel Gallery now presents a knockout new exhibition offering a unique lense on the scene. "Rock Palaces of New York" features shots of Janis Jopin, the Grateful Dead and Kiss, to name but a few, at legendary venues the Filmore East and the Academy of Music, taken by celebrated rock snappers Amalie R. Rothschild and Bill Green. Take a look at the show here—then go out and soak up the real deal at the best live music venues in New York
