If you’re tired of Jay-Z’s ode to New York that still makes appearances on random car stereos throughout the city, consider Flavorpill’s Rock ‘n Roll Map of Manhattan for a walking tour of classic and indie anthems devoted to the city streets where dreams are made of. A few examples through the lyrical neighborhood tour include: Bobby Womack’s “Across 110th Street” referencing Harlem, Roxy Music’s “To Turn You On” about 5th Avenue off of Broadway, and Leonard Cohen’s “Famous Blue Raincoat” name drops Clinton Street on the Lower East Side.
