Constantine Valhoui has created the NYC Music Map. It is a Google Map with geographical pins placed on over 200 references to the NYC area. So what songs did he find for Williamsburg/Greenpoint?
CocoRosie – South 2nd
The Besnard Lakes – Bedford and Grand
Paris Streets – Bedford Avenue
Justice of the Unicorns – McCarren Pool
Fleshtones – Destination Greenpoint USA
Nellie McKay – Manhattan Avenue
All of the songs he’s listed so far only seem to reference Williamsburg/Greenpoint in the titles of the songs. If we dig a little deeper there has to be a lot more. I can think of Say Hi’s Pop Music Of The Future off the top of my head with the lyrics “She’s got a loft space, takes the L train to Bedford. Runs with some cool kids that are actors but dress like nerds.”
What other songs can you guys name? Leave them in the comments and I’ll send Constantine a list to add to his map.
