The Rock and Roll Tour of Manhattan is a professionally developed, self-guided audio walking tour and begins at what was formerly the site of The Palladium, 14th Street near 3rd Avenue. You will continue with several stops in the East Village before heading west to Greenwich Village.

The tour consists of about 50 minutes of material and takes about two hours to complete, a bit more if you take the walk up to the Chelsea Hotel for the last stop.
