New York City

New York City ABD'nin kuzeydoğusunda yer alan, bu kıtanın en büyük nüfuslu şehri. New York eyaletinin güneydoğu kesiminde, Hudson Nehrinin ağzında yer alır. Şehrin alanı 787 km2, nüfusu ise yaklaşık 10 milyon civarındadır.

New York şehri, herbiri kendine has bir hayat tarzı ve biçimiyle ayrılan bir dizi semtin toplamı gibidir. adeta New York'la özdeşleştirilen Manhattan, New York'un ekonomik ve kültürel merkezidir. Manhattan'ın en çarpıcı özellikleri gökdelenleri, göz kamaştırıcı ışıklar ve hareketliliğidir. Hayat tarzının Manhattan'daki kadar çeşitli olduğu Brooklyn alışveriş merkezleri, sanayi bölgeleri ve zengin Brooklyn Heights'ın yanısıra fakirliğin kol gezdiği Bedford-Stuyvesant bölgesi gibi alanları kaplar. Orta sınıfın oturduğu Queens daha ziyade, eski ve oturmuş mahallelerin meydana getirdiği bir bölgedir. Bronx, kasvetli mahalleleriyle kirli işlerin döndüğü bir mekandır. Staten Island'ın kırsal görünümü son zamanlardaki şehirleşmeyle değişim göstermeye başlamıştır.

Dünyanın finans merkezi durumunda olan New York'ta çok sayıda büyük şirket vardır. Bunun yanında ekonomiye katkısı olan pekçok küçük işletme ve imalathane bulunur. Manhattan'daki giyim eşyası sanayileri çağımızda bile imalat sektörünün en önemli dalını meydana getirir. New York ayrıca ülkenin kitle iletişim araçları ağının can damarı sayılır. Milli televizyon ve radyo istasyonlarının merkezleriyle büyük reklam şirketlerinin ana büroları da New York'tadır.

Son yıllarda teknolojinin yükselmesi ve şirket birleşmelerinin sonucu işten atılmalar artmıştır. Şirketlerin meselelerinin artması ve yüksek seviyedeki suç işleme oranı birçok şirketi, çalışmalarını başka şehirlere kaydırmaya yöneltmiştir.

New York, ABD'nin geniş kapsamlı kamu üniversitelerinin bulunduğu tek şehridir. 1970'te bütün lise mezunlarına diploma derecelerine göre üniversiteye girme imkanı tanınmıştır. Seçkin özel üniversite ve yüksekokullar arasında Columbia, New York, Rockefeller ve Fordham üniversiteleriyle Juilliard Okulu ve çoğu hastanelerle bağlantılı tıp okulları sayılabilir.

Şehrin metro sistemi metropoliten alan içinde kitle ulaşım araçlarından faydalanan yolcuların yaklaşık % 40'ını taşır. Yoğun trafik saatlerinde ise istasyonlardan dakikada bir tren geçer.

New York ülkenin sanat, eğlence ve moda şehri olarak da ünlüdür. Çok sayıda kurumla desteklenen ve adeta sanayi haline gelen bu etkinlikler, bütün dünyadan Ünlü isimleri çektiği gibi yeni şöhretlerin ortaya çıkmasına da katkıda bulunur. Son yıllardaki şiddet olayları bu canlılığa darbe vurmuştur. New York Kütüphanesi dünyanın sayılı araştırma kütüphanelerinden biridir. Şehrin dünya çapındaki müzeleri arasında, Metropolitan Sanat Müzesi, Modern Sanat Müzesi, Guggenheim Müzesi, Whitney Müzesi ve Amerika Tabiat Tarihi Müzesi sayılabilir.

New York'un bulunduğu yöreyi ilk defa İngiliz denizci Henry Hudson'ın, Hollanda Batı Hindistan kumpanyası adına düzenlediği seferde 1609'da keşfettiği kabul edilir. 1626'da Manhattan yerlilerden satın alındı. Bölgede kurulan ve Nreuw Amsterdam adı verilen şehrin çevresinde başka yerleşmeler de ortaya çıktı. Hollandalılar şehri dış ticarete açarak bir dizi yol yaptılar. 1664'te Hollanda egemenliğine son veren İngilizler şehrin adını New York olarak değiştirdiler.

Amerikan Bağımsızlık Savaşı sırasında işgal ve yıkıma uğrayan New York, ABD'nin ilk başşehri oldu (1790). Amerikan iç savaşı sırasında özellikle İrlandalı göçmenlerin 1863'te yaptığı ayaklanmada 2000'den fazla kişi öldü. Savaş sonrasında Manhattan çevresindeki, ayrı tüzel kişiliği olan şehirlerle gelişen bağlar birleşmeyi gündeme getirdi. Sonunda 1 Ocak 1898'de bu dört şehir New York'a bağlandı. Böylece New York bir metropole dönüşürken dünya çapında önem kazanmaya başladı.

New York City (John Lennon) sözleri

John Lennon tarafından Anthology albümünde söylenen New York City adlı şarkının sözleri.

Written by John Lennon

Standing on the corner
Just me and yoko ono
We was waiting for jerry to land
Up come a man with the guitar
in his hand
Singing "have a marijuana if you can"
His name was Davis Peel
And we found that he was real
He sangs"The pope smokes
dope everyday"
Up come a police man shoved
us up the street
Singin, "power to the
people today!"

NYC...NYC...NYC
Que pasa Ny?...Que pasa NY?

Well we went to max's
Kansas City
Got down the nitty gritty
With the Elephants Memory
Band
Laid something down
As the news spread around
About the Plastic Ono
Elephants Memory Band!
Well we played some funky
boogie
And laid some tutti frutti
Singing "Long tall sally's
a man"
Up come a preachman trying to be a teacher
Singing "God's a red herring in grag!"

NYC...NYC...NYC
Que pasa Ny?...Que pasa NY?
Well we did the Staten
Island Ferry
Making movies for the telly
Played the fillmore and
Apollo for freedom,
Tried to shake our image
Just a cycling through
the village
But found that we had left it
back in london.
Well nobody came to bug us,
hustle ud or shove us
so we decided to make it
our home
If the man wants to shove
us out
We gonna jump and shout
The Statue of Liberty said,
"come!"

NYC...NYC...NYC
Que pasa Ny?...Que pasa NY?

NYC down in the village
What a bad-ass city!
Que pasa Ny?...Que pasa NY?

New York City (They Might Be Giants) sözleri

They Might Be Giants tarafından albümünde söylenen New York City adlı şarkının sözleri.

You called me last night on the telephone
And I was glad to hear from you ’cause I was all alone
You said, it’s snowing, it’s snowing! god, I hate this weather.
Now I walk through blizzards just to get us back together

We met in the springtime at a rock-and-roll show
It was on the bowery when it was time to go
We kissed on the subway in the middle of the night
I held your hand, you held mine, it was the best night of my life.

’cause everyone’s your friend in new york city
And everything looks beautiful when you’re young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there’s just so much to see
But the best thing about new york city is you and me

Statue of liberty, staten island ferry, co-op city, katz’s and tiffany’s*
Central park, brooklyn bridge, the empire state where dylan lived**
Coney island and times square, rockefeller center
Wish I was there

You wrote me a letter just the other day
Said, springtime is coming soon so why don’t you come to stay.
I packed my stuff, got on the bus, I can’t believe it’s true
I’m three days from new york city and I’m three days from you

’cause everyone’s my friend in new york city
And everything looks beautiful when you’re young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there’s just so much to see
But the best thing about new york city is you and me

’cause everyone’s my friend in new york city
And everything looks beautiful when you’re young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there’s just so much to see
But the best thing about new york city is you and me.

New York City (Madball) sözleri

Madball tarafından albümünde söylenen New York City adlı şarkının sözleri.

I see it every day
Everywhere I look they say
Another life has been taken away
It makes my stomach turn
But livin’ here you gotta learn
Get used to itit’s reality
Say your prayers
Hope it won’t happen to you
Mind you business
Do what you gotta do
Don’t look for trouble
Sometimes trouble finds you
What can you dowhat can I do ?

One on one fights don’t exist
Fist fights are extinct
Nowadays people don’t seem to think
They can’t see how easy
It is to set a soul free
That decision is not theirs to make

Repeat chorus

Now you see what I mean
Protecting my family and me
What can I do ?

It makes my stomach turn
But livin’ here you gotta learn
You gotta fight back when someones
Tries to take your life from you

Did you ever see a woman
Coming out of New York City
With a frog in her hand

And don't it show

New York City (Paul Van Dyk) sözleri

Paul Van Dyk tarafından albümünde söylenen New York City adlı şarkının sözleri.

I watch the sky turn black to blush
Head still spinning from the rush
Of all the things I did the night before

And looking down from my hotel
These dawn-lit streets begin to fill
With memories of you and I
On a New York City night

I shake my head to clear the sounds
The traffic horns, the growing crowd
The sun awaking over central park

But still it creeps beneath my skin
All of these heartbeats in the din
With concrete dreams stirring to life
On a New York City night

And I take it with me when I leave
The crowded skyline, the energy
The sleepless city always leaves its mark

Just close my eyes and I'm back again
The neon flush upon our skin
Still wrapped in thoughts of love and wine
On a New York City night

New York City (T Rex) sözleri

And don't it show

New york city, you're so pretty
All your faces, going places
And i believe if you fall in love
I believe if you fall in love
You should jump right in
Always going, faster modem
Cell phone fables, candle-lit tables
I believe if you fall in love

Yes, i believe if you fall in love
You should jump right in
I wrote our initials in the sidewalk cement
Tattooed your name across my arm for all to see
I wanna sing about it, sing about it, sing about it
I've got your back from now on baby, you can count on me
Only one life, kisses all night
Kids round fountains, concrete mountains
And i believe if you fall in love
I believe if you fall in love

I saw a rainbow stretched across the ocean
Crashed the Big Apple
So I took a bite
Found a taste I like
But she bit me back

I jumped across the ocean
Found a Big Apple
So I took a bite
She teased me with a taste
Laid my soul to waste
Stabbed me in the back

Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
I ain't never coming back, no
Hell's Kitchen is a DMZ
I ain't never coming back, child

Pressure never stops
Pressure never drops
Lennon got fried
Said it was a crime
Said it was a pity
No one even cried

Pressure never stops
Pressure never drops
Lennon got fried
Said it was a crime
Said it was a pity
No one even cried, cried, cried

Twenty four hour groove
Working up a frenzy baby
People push on through, yeah

Listen boy
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I jumped across the ocean
Found a Big Apple
So I took a bite
She teased me with a taste
Laid my soul to waste
Stabbed me in the back

Wake up, yeah, in the New York City
Well, New York City, yeah, yeah

Emigrate tarafından albümünde söylenen New York City adlı şarkının sözleri.

I am lost in the world of lies
Mesmerize my nice
This guy's graves and building sights
So I'm feelin' so alive
Whatever is clever
Whatever is clever will have to wait

Thinking on the world as large
This city's got it all
Culture clash and sidewalk trash
Don't look you might fall

And now we just feel like energy
New York city will never flee
And now we just feel like synergy
New York city is the place to be!

I'm gonna win, I'm gonna lose
I'm gonna chase till the end
And if you're walkin' in my shoes
You gonna make it all pretend

Whatever's clever
Whatever's clever will have to wait

And now we just feel like energy
New York city will never flee
And now we just feel like synergy
New York city is the place to be!

New York City (Jesus Mary Chain) sözleri

I got a woman and she ain't so tall
She got a mouth like texas and that ain't small
Hey Mr President get down on your knees
The USA's got a social disease
Feed my cock feed my brain
I'm tripping out in the pouring rain
I see the sky and the clouds from above
And I see the mountains but I'm not in love
Cause I see New York City (City)
