Video of the Day: Dave Frishberg’s “Do You Miss New York?”

By Don Heckman

Spending yesterday at a 4th of July barbecue party with friends was a reminder of how many former New Yorkers are among our close circle.  And, as so often happens at our get-togethers, most of us who made the cross country move from New York City to Los Angeles couldn’t help but share our memories of the Village, Brooklyn, the lower East Side, the upper West Side and beyond.  There are a lot of songs about New York.  But none capture those memories — with wit and style — any better than Dave Frishberg’s “Do You Miss New York?”

Here’s a delightful Frishberg video of the song with images to illuminate the words.  (Thanks to Roger the Song Scout for telling us about it.)
