From Booklist:

The Big Apple deserves exploration "through the poetry of its music" because, Groce says, "no [other] American city has inspired more music." Well, New Orleans might seriously challenge New York in songs per capita, but her point is well taken, considering the roster of music notables who have referenced the big burg, from George M. Cohan to Cole Porter to Billy Joel. Stars aside, Groce emphasizes the songs in such chapters as "Mass Transit in Song" and "Celebrating Broadway," which delightfully detail the tuneful specifics of life in the boroughs. In "New Yorkers in Love" --which doesn't have to be a frightening concept--she recalls such favorites as "Manhattan Serenade" and "She's Got a Great Big Army of Friends Since She Lives Near the Navy Yard." In "Crime and Punishment," she cites "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue," among others. Many beautiful sheet-music covers colorfully illustrate this playful and--with such sidebar fare as a summary of "Brooklyn's Biggest Sex Scandal," involving that nineteenth-century Swaggart, Henry Ward Beecher--informative book. Mike Tribby
