BEASTIE BOYS lyrics : "An Open Letter To NYC"

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin

Black, White, New York you make it happen

Brownstones, water towers, trees, skyscrapers

Writers, prize fighters and Wall Street traders
We come together on the subway cars
Diversity unified, whoever you are

We're doing fine on the One and Nine line
On the L we're doin' swell
On the number Ten bus we fight and fuss

'Cause we're thorough in the boroughs and that's a must
I remember when the Duece was all [email protected]$^o flicks
Running home after school to play PIX * 1

At lunch I'd go to Blimpies down on Montague Street
And hit the Fulton Street Mall for the sneakers on my feet
Dear New York I hope you're doing well

I know a lot's happen and you've been through hell
So, we give thanks for providing a home
Through your gates at Ellis Island we passed in droves


Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan

Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
Black, White, New York you make it happen


The L.I.E. the B.Q.E
Hippies at the band shell with the L.S.D.
Get my BVD's from VIM

You know I'm reppin' Manhattan the best I can
Stopped off at Bleeker Bob's got thrown out
Sneakin' in at 4:00 am after going out

You didn't rob me in the park at Dianna Ross
But everybody started looting when the light went off
From the South South Bronx on out to Queens Bridge

From Hollis Queens right down to Bay Ridge
From Castle Hill to the Lower East Side
From 1010 WINS to Live At Five

Dear New York this is a love letter
To you and how you brought us together
We can't say enough about all you do

'Cause in the city were ourselves and electric too

Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten

From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
Black, White, New York you make it happen


Shout out the South Bronx where my mom hails from
Right next to High Bridge across from Harlem

To the Grand Concourse where my mom and dad met
Before they moved on down to the Upper West
I see you're still strong after all that's gone on

Life long we dedicate this song
Just a little something to show some respect
To the city that blends and mends and tests

Since 911 we're still livin'
And lovin' life we've been given
Ain't nothing gonna take that away from us

Were lookin' pretty and gritty 'cause in the city we trust
Dear New York I know a lot has changed
2 towers down but you're still in the game

Home to many rejecting know one
Accepting peoples of all places, wherever they're from


Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin

Black, White, New York you make it happen
