On August 20, 1998, I started spreadin' the news and became a part of it - New York, New York. Not knowing quite what to expect, I did a Radio City high kick and went for it.
My New York City is a city of friends, it is a city of family, it is a city of passion, it is a city of acceptance.
My New York City is one where glittering disco cowboys dance with you till dawn, suited up lawyers negotiate with you in conference rooms high in the sky, and a single statue of bronze lights up her torch nightly, welcoming the freedom our nation was built upon.
My New York City is one where we watched in horror as towers of steel fell in our backyards - just to watch them rise bigger, stronger!
My New York City is one where dragons and drums parade around you as you eat dim sum dumplings, while Josephine Baker winks at you during a course of escargot.
My New York City is one of Dreamgirls and Jersey Boys!
My New York City is one where immigrants ride shoulder to shoulder with fellow Yankees on the Lexington Avenue Express-- architects from Serbia, opera singers from Puerto Rico, financiers from South Africa, perfumers from Mexico, cellists from Israel, figure skaters from Russia, doctors from Ireland.
My New York City is one where our little town blues have melted away!
My New York is one in which adult entertainment legends dance with psychedelic flags at tea dances in the basements of discos while ballet dancers pirouette in precision at Lincoln Center, where crystal orbit chandeliers rise to the ceilings.
My New York City is one where music intoxicates your soul in East Village watering holes and stimulates your senses in the lipstick red velvet boxes of Carnegie Hall.
My New York City is one where each night you get caught between the Moon and New York City and give in to that love!
I celebrate the 20th Anniversary of waking up in the City that Never Sleeps! Come on Come Through, Here's to YOU - NEW YORK, NEW YORK!
