For the past few weeks we’ve been locked in the basement at Yankee Stadium, subsisting on nothing but Bergen Bagels, listening to the best songs about New York City through headphones endorsed by Lou Reed. Our mission: to come up with a list of the 60 best songs ever written about our city, songs that best capture what it’s like to live, love, struggle, and exist in the sprawling, unforgiving, culturally dense metropolis we pay too much to call home.

About two weeks ago, the elusive graffiti artist Banksy got the Internet whirring when he tore down his multipage website and left just a single black-and-white image of a previously unseen stenciled work and an apparent announcement of an upcoming, um, show titled “Better … [Read more...] about The Banksy Diaries: Relive All 31 Days of His New York Takeover
