“New York City, Center of the Universe”

New York City is make it or break it, and there’s no way out once you’re there. The city gets into your veins, and the songs invade your brain.

Times Square is the biggest and brightest of all. Billboards fly stories above the people, and inspire music to come from the heart and soul.
New York City, New York: place of commerce and business, hope and remembrance, life and death. The home that this city boasts isn’t about a particular race or religion. It’s about diversity and embracing differences. This playlist, much like the city, is organized to remind everyone of the way this place comes together with all of the beauty and all of the tragedy inside of it.
