What to expect

Freewheel through the streets of Greenwich Village, following in the faded tracks of the numerous artists that lived here (Barbara Streisand, Bob Dylan, Edgar Allen Poe, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, George Carlin and many, many more). Solve clues to discover the places where poets and musicians lived and performed. See where Dylan Thomas had his last drink and where Barbara Streisand first debuted. Are you ready to roll?

Storyline:

You’re a budding young music journalist in the final years of the 60s. You’ve bagged a job at a fashionable new magazine called Rolling Stone, but you’re yet to have your ‘big story’. Today might just be the day, though. Your editor has arranged for you to interview Bob Dylan. She tells you to meet him in The White Horse Tavern on Hudson Street, but he’s notoriously unreliable. You might have to go looking for him, and he doesn’t like being found. Nor does he like journalists.
