Start Spreading the News...

Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it - new york, new york
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it - new york,
new york
I wanna wake up in a city, that doesn’t sleep
And find I’m king of the hill - top of the heap
My little town blues are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it, in old New York
if I can make it there,
I’d make it anywhere
come on, come through New York, New York
 * I was watching Cloverfield the other night, and kept thinking about this song...

This makes me so proud to be a NYer.

I was trying to catch a bus there one night and there was this panther on the wall above me. Nearly got me. Good times. (Cat People)

Emily, glad I could boost your sense of civic pride!

Jack, Oh man, I forgot about the cat people...wasn't there a scene at a public swimming pool - or am I thinking of something else?

Great post. NYC rules [I should know, I live there].

as a NY based horror fan this hit all the right notes. I actually started humming the song as I was scrolling down.
