I was able to visit Manhattan this summer, unfortunately it was during the hottest weekend of the year, so it was a bit punishing. But even in the heat, Manhattan is mesmerizing, especially for fans of music. Every block seems to hold some incredible historical significance and it really does feel like the center of the world (sorry L.A., London, Paris). Case in point -- New York City has inspired more songs than any other city on the planet - by a wide margin. To cut this playlist down to size I've only chosen songs that mention the borough of Manhattan and fall within the genres of alternative or indie rock music.
Let me know what I've missed.
