Synopsis: Once the centre of the New York bohemia, Greenwich Village is now home to lux restaurants and buzzer-door clothing stores catering to the nouveau riche. But one shop in the heart of the Village remains resilient to the encroaching gentrification: Carmine Street Guitars. There, custom guitar maker Rick Kelly and his young apprentice Cindy Hulej build handcrafted guitars out of reclaimed wood from old hotels, bars, churches, and other local buildings.
