The History of Art, Crime, Drugs and Punk Rock on the Lower East Side

From grimy clubs to gang hangouts, stops along this three-hour tour show the connection between crime and artistry in one of Manhattan’s most complicated communities. Tour guide and Cro-Mags frontman John Joseph leads this walking autobiography, as he takes people through “the side of NYC that no longer exists,” but one he has been an integral part of since the 1970s.
