TimeOut New York reviews My Name Is New York: Ramblin’ Around Woody Guthrie’s Town by Nora Guthrie and the Woody Guthrie Archives in time for Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday. The article explains that “to commemorate the centennial, [Woody’s] daughter Nora Guthrie, director of the Woody Guthrie Archives, has compiled the walking guide ‘My Name Is New York: Ramblin’ Around Woody Guthrie’s Town’…which maps the singer’s haunts in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.” Seen as a New York City guidebook TimeOut offers that “those hoping to retrace Guthrie’s steps, as Bob Dylan famously did in his song ‘Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie,’ will find that some locations are long gone…but other spots remain intact, like the townhouse where the songwriter lived with Seeger, Lead Belly, Rebel Without a Cause director Nicholas Ray and others.” The review includes quotes from Nora about the book and her father’s many residencies in the city.
