If Greenwich Village is the historic home of the counterculture, then the East Village can be called famous for its off-the-counter culture. On this tour, see where Chicago 8 defendant Jerry Rubin paraded down St. Mark's Place with a machine gun; the former Polish catering hall where the Velvet Underground played its first gigs under manager Andy Warhol (and the St. Mark's Place thrift shop where Warhol often shopped) and the former Fillmore East, the greatest rock venue in history.
