My friend Simon passed this onto me earlier in the week (originally found of Flavorwire). I like the concept (click on it to enlarge), but I feel that it's missing about nine-dozen other spots, notably "Dance (Pt.1)" by the Stones (West 8th Street & Sixth Avenue), "I Love New York" by the Pop-O-Pies (St. Marks Place), "At the Zoo" by Simon & Garfunkel (Central Park), "Balloon Man" by Robyn Hitchcock (Sixth Avenue & Bryant Park), "People Who Died" by the Jim Carroll Band (Upper Manhattan, The Tombs), "Hung Again" by Cop Shoot Cop (the Williamsburg Bridge), "Broadway (So Many People)" by Low (Broadway, just north of Houston), etc. etc. etc.
What other Manhattan topographical-song-citations can you name? Ready? GO!
Sadly, this would have been a wonderful item to put up on The New York Nobody Sings, but it seems that said blog has had its plug pulled. Pour one out.
