This song is NOT the "anthem" of NYC, not by a long shot. The song is annoying and simply appeals to the younger people because it's Jay-Z.

New York, New York by Frank Sinatra
New York State of Mind by Billy Joel

Now THOSE are NYC anthems!

Anybody who says its annoying or sickening is just showing their age. lol. Give credit where its due, its a good song period. Better than billy joels by a long shot(never understood the hype on that one) but not quite as timeless as sinitra's. Jay has to change the lyrics first, to be more adaptable than he'll have a chance. Btw hes already doing that for empire state of mind 2
