Bob Dylan In NYC, Day 3: Revisiting The Gaslight, The Village Gate, And More


All this week we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s arrival in Manhattan; with Cafe Wha? and Jones Street behind us, day three of our video tour of Dylan’s New York finds us heading just south of Washington Square to take in supplementary settings steeped in freewheelin’ history: where he performed “Masters of War” for the first time, say, or where he wrote “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” And in between the landmarks, we drop by to discuss present-day MacDougal Street with long-time T-shirt-shop-owner Dusan Djordjevic and his cousin Srdjan Pezo, Dusan’s designated lifeline for all things Dylan.
