Help. Seeking suggestions

I wonder if I might ask your help. I'm looking for your favourite songs about New York. Doesn't have to have New York in the title so long as it's about the city.

Also, if you have any songs about America in general that you love, that would be good

(Or about London, but I think I have that mostly covered. Still, all additional suggestions welcome)

It's for a CD I'm burning for someone who's off on a trip to New York

ETA:
Songs I have:
Ryan Adams, New York
U2, The Hands That Built America
Sting, Englishman In New York
Stephen Fretwell, New York
Billy Joel, New York State of Mind

Is it just about the city?
Dar Williams' "Southern California wants to be Western New York"

Sufjan Stevens, "Chicago"

Trust me on this one, the second verse is about New York

Re: Is it just about the city?
It was mostly about the city, but I wasn't sure if I could find enough MORish songs about just the city
