I have a New York City playlist, which by the way I am always looking to add to, so if you have a song suggestion, please leave it in the comments!
One of my favorites is They Might Be Giants New York song. There is a short section of the song that lists some NYC sites. In the link above the list starts at 1:11 if you want to hear it.
Here it is in text version:
“Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Co-op City, Katz’s and Tiffany’s*
Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State where Dylan lived**
Coney Island and Times Square, Rockefeller Center
Wish I was there”
