“Wish I Could Forget” by The Weepies

Having only ever seen New York in movies, I always thought it was this sunny city with throngs of kids going to school, and a lot of black guys playing basketball in wifebeaters. And there’s the occasional donut-stuffing cop or two, and concrete all around. This is also what this song reminds me of.

There’s also a movie called “Prime” starring Uma Thurman that captures many of these cliches. Exceptional popcorn flick, if you’re looking for one.
