In a country as multicultural and all-embracing as the United States, nowhere has the impact of rock ‘n’ roll been felt more than New York, the gateway to Europe. And it was on the streets and sidewalks of New York City that rock grew up, finding a new authenticity in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village and the downtown club scene.

In NYC Rock, this evolution is captured, pinned down and studied, its heritage mapped from the profligate hitmaking of the legendary Brill Building writers to the traditionalist renaissance spearheaded by The Strokes, by way of the folk of Dylan, the punk of The Ramones and the downright weirdness that fills the gaps in the brickwork of this most eclectic of cities. It’s a story spanning five decades that’s a microcosm of rock ‘n’ roll itself.
