On a visit to New York a number of years ago, I took something called the Punk Rock Walk. It was a walking tour of lower Manhattan that started at Joey Ramone's apartment building and ended at CBGB. It was fascinating.
I've since taken several more walking tours, including a Beatles walk in London. You really get a feel for history with these things.
Now there's a Beastie Boys walk. The first one goes Saturday, the day before Adam Yauch's birthday. I'm hoping that if it all goes well, this will become a regular thing.
