So many songs are written about New York… But the most iconic words that ring true to every single person who has ever braved the streets of living in this city are Frank Sinatra’s, who said it best:

“If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere…

It’s up to you New York, New York”. These words and breathed in by each and every person who have experienced the city; mind, body, and soul – and is permanently etched into their being.

For those who live here, it’s like God’s words that are only ever heard by New Yorkers are what placates them when they wake up depleted and depressed. When the whole world crumbles around you, and the walls seem as though they’re closing in.

We find the courage to stand up and brush it off. We turn to Alexa and say, “ Alexa, play my morning song” – and Frank begins, “Start spreading the news…”

And suddenly, all is well. Suddenly the dejected soul is ready to conquer the urban jungle that is New York. You put your hands on your waist, straighten your back, stick your chin way up high, and kick as elegantly and purposefully as every beautiful Rockette performer has ever done in every single one of their shows!

Yes, New York is daunting. It’s impressive. It’s mysterious. It’s blinding. It’s addictive. It’s inviting. It’s scary. It’s challenging. It’s mindblowing. It’s dark. It’s bright. It’s very VERY bright. It’s secretive. It’s magnificent! It’s all of this and more.
