Discounted Tickets to the Museum of the City of New York’s The Vibe of the Village Festival

Untapped New York Insiders can score Member priced tickets to the Museum of the City of New York's The Vibe of the Village Festival! From Friday, November 22nd through Sunday, November 24th, the Museum will host a series of events that celebrate the creative legacy of The Village Voice (1955-2018), the downtown alternative weekly that "gave New York its cool." In honor of the one-year anniversary of the pioneering paper's closing, this weekend-long festival features conversations with distinguished former Voice writers and photographers and a coffeehouse-style concert with legendary musician David Amram and friends.

At once a feisty neighborhood newspaper that challenged local politics and the essential chronicler of downtown arts and culture, the Voice helped define the free-wheeling spirit of the Village in the late 1950s, '60s, and '70s (and beyond) while nurturing several generations of influential American journalists, critics, and photographers. Join us to explore what both the late-lamented Voice, and more broadly "the Village," meant and continues to mean to New York's identity as a creative hotbed. On Friday and Sunday, there will be a series of events that are free with Museum admission. Insiders can get Member pricing for the following sessions on Saturday, November 23rd.
