New York – Empire State of mind

Alicia Keys, calling herself ironically “the new Sinatra”, tells in her lyrics “Empire State Of Mind” about Brooklyn and Tribeca, Harlem or 5-60 State street – fascinated by the “concrete jungle” like many of us…

  5. Brooklyn Bridge – my home. I walked over that bridge to get home in the black-out of the 60’s. My husband had a ring made for me of the bridge because of that and because Brooklyn is where we grew up and is our home no matter where we roam.
    Nice piece – photo’s video – all.

  6. MAny people like New York: Some like it so much they decided to move and visit the streets…”En masse”, so to speak. Nice song, I wish one day to experience that place in person. Thanks Frizetext.
