Big Apple Visions

Start Spreading the News

For those classmates who no longer live in the Big Apple, when was the last time you ventured into the far reaches of our famed city? And for those who have remained nearby, have you become inattentive to the amazing sights and sounds which surrounded us in our high school days?

Now, thanks to the incredible photography of our esteemed classmate, Gimley Farb, you can see how the biggest city in our land has evolved since your last visit.

Start spreading the news
I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
They are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

These small town blues
They are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it
In old New York

If I can make it there
I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York

East side, West side
All around the town
The tots sang ‘Ring-a-Rosie’
‘London Bridge is falling down!

Boys and girls together
Me and Mamie O’Rorke
Tripped the light fantastic
On the sidewalks of New York
