New York State of Mind

Accordion cityscape collage by Gina Greenlee

Some folks like to get away Take a holiday from the neighborhood Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood But I’m takin’ a Greyhound on the Hudson River line I’m in a New York state of mind. – Billy Joel, New York State of Mind

And love Love is just a passing word It’s the thought that you had In a taxicab that got left on the curb When he dropped you off at East 83rd

Take a YouTube tour of my hometown. The background song is the 1977 hit Native New Yorker, performed by Odyssey. The lyrics, shared in this blog and written by Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell, kick in at minute 1:15.
