Having just been to New York City for the first time in my life - yes, it's about time - I found that I loved the city I feel that I know so well through films, TV shows, books - and music. The musical history of New York City is filled with amazing stuff, and I have picked 18 songs that all can be identified somehow with this city of wonders. Hope you like them.
