New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York

These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York,
New York

One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams, all lookin’ pretty
No place in the world that could compare
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say “yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah”

At one point in my life, I had planned on going to NYU, for a PhD in Theatre; but those plans have been changed by more important decisions in my life, such as having a child. Maybe someday I’d go back to my dream. Maybe someday I’d get to New York… to walk Central Park, to watch shows on and off-Broadway and visit the museums. Maybe I don’t have to go to NYU, but I would definitely want to see plain NY.

Yes, I would love to go to New York someday. 🙂
