Bob Dylan In NYC: Revisiting Cafe Wha? And 94 MacDougal
Pic by Trucks.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan's arrival in New York City: To celebrate, each day this week we'll be taking you to a different landmark integral to the half-century-old Bob-in-NYC story, hosted by the most deadpan voice-over guy in history (that'd be me) and filmed by Voice video guru Jeremy Krinsley. In today's episode, we visit the still-intact Cafe Wha? (where it all started back on January 24, 1961) and 94 MacDougal, where Dylan lived -- unhappily, it would appear, thanks to that guy rooting through his trash -- for a few years after returning to the city in 1969.
