You Belong to the City

People of a certain age might remember a haunting song by Glenn Frey prominently featured in a certain 80’s television show.  The song played on a show set in Miami, but Frey sang about New York.   Almost 30 years later that song still resonates, when Frey sings “You belong to the City”  it captures exactly how I felt the first time I saw New York City, stepping off the bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in 1988.  It would be fifteen years before I returned, the City remained in my blood calling me back.
