Description:
 NYC’s musical tradition extends from 18th- & 19th-century broadside ballads to Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, and the various folk revivals, and from street-corner doo-wop and the Brill Building to cutting-edge singer-songwriters. Discover crime songs, transportation songs, housing songs, and other songs of life and love in the city — and consider how these songs reflect the sights and sounds, the rhythms and energy, and the peculiar problems and charms of urban living.
