I dislike 'Describe ___ in X number of words' games, but what the hell, I'll bite. I honestly love/hate this city, especially after having endured forced exile in so many different areas of the country. (Try living through a subzero winter in Minneapolis; imagine watching The Replacements perform drunk at a dive bar near the University of Minnesota, surrounded by guys in smelly Army surplus parkas dancing in Sorel boots.)

Anyway:

The Cloisters
Astoria (I'm assuming we're not limiting ourselves to Manhattan)
Brooklyn Bridge
Pearl River
Brownie's Cafe
The Strand
Irving Plaza
Lou Reed & Laurie Anderson
The Velvet Underground
Patti Smith
John Ashbery

I forgot to throw in Central Park but that seems too obvious. Also a shoutout to PS85Q aka Judge Charles J. Vallone School.
