Broadway Songs about New York

Broadway Songs About New York

Of the many iconic features of New York City, Broadway is one of the most beloved, and Broadway and New York have become nearly synonymous over the years. So as much as New Yorkers love to celebrate Broadway, Broadway returns the favor with dozens of plays and musicals that highlight the city through setting and song. From timeless classics such as Guys and Dolls and West Side Story to new favorites like Newsies and Hamilton, there is no shortage of incredible homages to the “greatest city in the world.”

And because New Yorkers hold such a great sense of pride for this city, we’ve compiled a playlist of songs that will have them belting from their balconies (or, more likely, fire escapes).
