Check Out A Map of Woody Guthrie’s New York


Folk singer, activist, and Bob Dylan’s icon Woody Guthrie lived in New York City from 1940 to 1967 and spent some of the most productive years of his life residing on Mermaid Avenue, in Coney Island.  Guthrie’s daughter, Nora, has gathered stories from some of Guthrie’s friends, followers, family, and collaborators into a book and accompanying audio tour of Guthrie’s favorite haunts and hangouts in the city. And what’s more: Now there’s a map for you to use for a choose-your-own-Guthrie-adventure.

WNYC compiled the map below, culled from My Name Is New York: Ramblin’ Around Woody Guthrie’s Town. Seems like it’s high time for a field trip.
