Famous Artists of Manhattan Private Exploration Game

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. Ready to roll?

See Washington Square Park, the epicenter of the hippie movement and the stage of the Beatnik Riot. Enjoy the musical aura that radiates from Electric Lady Circus, the recording studio Jimi Hendrix set up just before his death. Find yourself at The Bitter End, a venue that claims to be New York City’s oldest rock and roll club.

Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions. As you solve the challenge, the secret story of each place is unlocked.

    The Bon Soir, owned by Ernie Sgroi Sr., was a small night club in New York's Greenwich Village. Comedians and singers like Phyllis Diller, Kaye Ballard, and Ethel Waters performed there.

    Stop At: 85 W 3rd St, New York, NY 10012, USA

    Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer, poet, editor, and literary critic. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre.

    Stop At: Cafe Wha?, 115 Macdougal St, New York City, NY 10012-1202

    It was at the Cafe Wha? that young performers like Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Woody Allen, Lenny Bruce, Bill Cosby and Richard Pryor got early chances to hone their talents. Folk singers, artists, poets, beatniks and anarchists came to the club, and so did far greater numbers of tourists, eager to observe those exotic breeds.

    The Village Gate was a nightclub at the corner of Thompson and Bleecker Streets in Greenwich Village, New York.
