Alexandra + Gustavo | NYC Rock The Dress Session

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York,
New York- Jay-Z

I always wondered why people, specially artist, had such a fascination with New York City. I had been there before, and yes, it is a fun city, but I never felt like it was “THE CITY”. It all changed when I had the opportunity to work on the streets of NYC – then, Jay-Z’s lyrics made complete sense to me.
