"Empire State of Mind" is a song by American rapper Jay-Z, featuring vocals and a chorus from American singer Alicia Keys. It was released as the third single from Jay-Z's 11th studio album, The Blueprint 3 (2009), by his Roc Nation label in October 2009. The song is an anthemic ode to both artists' native hometown New York City.
This music is part of my history with my wife and was played during our wedding.
"In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing 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"

I always seem to stay away from these scenes, with the white skyline...but it seems to work well.
perhhaps I should change my way of thinking eh!
love seeing the ESB in the bg like this, and the man in the fg tries to emulate it haha
good inner city shot

A great song, a classic in my opinion, and that is a great title for this capture. A very nice and very different view of the Empire state building compared to those we normally see. As you have placed this so well as a part of the everyday scene, it makes perfect sense as attached to the title. Nicely done!
