This book is unique in that it is able to chronicle Woody's journey from place to place and the songs he wrote while he was in them. New York is a fantastic place anyway and this book could add to the enjoyment of the city. I was in New York in the sixties and know some of the areas and some of the people mentioned. The handwritten directions by Bob Dylan on how to get to see Woody in hospital, on page seventy five, are of particular interest as they have never been published before. A great read!!!!!!!

Magically transforms NYC into a Woody Guthrie 'museum.' 30 May 2013
By Craig A. Breighner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Those of us who might have thought we'd seen and heard everything we needed to know about Woody Guthrie after reading his autobiography, BOUND FOR GLORY, or viewing the motion picture loosely based on it will be reminded that Woody still had 24 years of living left to do following its first printing. This beautiful little book, MY NAME IS NEW YORK: RAMBLIN' AROUND WOODY GUTHRIE'S TOWN, fills in many biographical gaps. Its use of color, texture, and facsimiles of original music, lyrics, letters, names, addresses, and personal notes also reminded me of those little booklets printed especially to accompany and commemorate special museum exhibits. In a way, the book really does seem to turn parts of New York City and environs into a quasi-Woody Guthrie Museum.

An especially nice additional feature of this book is the information on neighborhoods and buildings where specific tunes and/or lyrics were composed. I purchased one copy for my youngest son, who now lives and works there, and another for myself. The book gave my son considerable enjoyment each and every time he found himself saying "I know where that is!" and brought back memories of my own youthful wanderlust roaming the streets and parks of one of the world's greatest cities with guitar strumming friends and fellow fans of both Woody and Arlo Guthrie.

For those that knew Woody Guthrie's movements to spread your concerns with the ordinary people this guide is essential to follow his steps through New York. City. I like it.
