Well, WS in the Village was definitely one of the epicenters of the Great Folk Scare. It was a grand place to hang out on a sunny Sunday, because if you coudl strum a few chords you might end up playing along with just anyone, and there was a fine sense of free and easy affinity among strangers who showed up there.
I want to know who remembers the names of the leading instrument stores and playing sites in the neighborhood. I vaguely remember Folk City but there are many others I have forgotten.
