There is nothing that beats Sinatra for class & panache, but I'm on an Avett Brothers kick right now, so I'm voting for "Famous Flower of Manhattan," and the way Avett Brother #1 sings the word "Manhattan" has stuck in my head for months. Lovely & sweet.
and then some brooklyn love from biggie & tupac and the beasties.
Always been a fan of Ryan Adams' New York, New York: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AzIv0NRw_s.

And LCD Soundsystem's New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down (been feeling this one lately!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JkBiP7rPt0

Just heard a nice little song on the radio called "Goodbye Crazy City" by Big Harp. Great lyrics like "light's outside advertising somebody else's dreams" - and "I still got the will, but the legs ain't there no more."
