A New York Soundtrack

We've put together a playlist of tunes that, to our ears, provides the perfect New York soundtrack for a spring stroll. There's a little bit of everything here, just like the city itself.

[Each of these tunes is available for 99¢ on iTunes, where you can also hear a 30-second sample of each selection. We use the genre descriptions that iTunes uses, though they're occasionally arguable. Click here to go to the iTunes store, view the playlist, and listen to samples. If you don't already have iTunes installed on your computer, it's a free download here.]
