A Heart in New York

Thirty years ago, on September 19, 1981 Simon & Garfunkel performed a free concert at the Great Lawn in Central Park. Over half a million fans attended.  The Great Lawn has presented over the years some of the most popular concert events in the history of New York.

“New York, to that tall skyline I come, flyin’ in from London to your door
New York, lookin’ down on Central Park
Where they say you should not wander after dark
New York, like a scene from all those movies
But you’re real enough to me, but there’s a heart

A heart that lives in New York
A heart in New York, a rose on the street
I write my song to that city heartbeat A heart in New York, love in her eye, an open door at a friend for the night
New York, you got money on your mind
And my words won’t make a dime’s worth a difference, so here’s to you New York”

Performed by Simon And Garfunkel
