Bobby Womack - Across 110th Street
I still remember the first time I went to New York City. Stepping out of the cab from JFK into midtown Manhattan with this song stuck in my head. It wasn’t until that very moment I realized the dirty, filthy crime infested NYC I’d long romanticized as a kid growing up in the 70’s and 80’s didn’t exist anymore. Replaced by tourist attractions and chain restaurants. I was there a week and didn’t see a single drug dealer or hooker the entire time. Anyway, great song.
