I'm In A New York State of Mind!


New York City is my first TRUE LOVE. There will never be another that I love in the same way. You remember your first love? No matter how much it hurt when you broke up, you still have that special place in your heart for that person?

Even through all the bad things that happen like being verbally or physically abused: "Hey F you! I got yer abuse right here! Get the F out of the street etc. etc."-shoved during a fabulous sample sale, getting soaked in the rain, everything being over priced, no where to park your car, the smell! It's cold, it's wet, it's expensive, but all you remember is how gorgeous it is.

The streets lined with silver sparkles on a sunny day, the store windows call you on 5th Ave, Park Ave Apts in all their glory. The three Bs: Bendel's, Bergdorf 's, & Barney's there just for you. Macy's, Blooningdales in true department store fashion. Oh and FASHION-no where else in this country is there any sense of fashion.

Central Park on a sunny day, the view from the top of the Empire State building, opening night at a Broadway show and the the bridges. The Village Voice, the New York Times, PAGE SIX, the New Yorker! Bagels, pizza!!

How can anyone possibly ever stand to live anywhere else?? *sigh*

My New York and no city will ever come close to replacing it. I have lived all over this country (USA) and the world and New York is where my heart is.

Los Angeles is also gorgeous, stunning, beautiful, smart, sexy and I do love L.A, but it ain't, and never will be New York and that is all I am sayin'

New York State of Mind - Billy Joel


Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighbourhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood
But I'm taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
I'm in a New York state of mind

I've seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens
But I know what I'm needing
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind
