Autumn in New York!

I spent the weekend looking at nature’s miracles- fall! As I walked around the city, I could hear Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday singing the same beautiful ballad “Autumn in New York”.

Why does it seem so exciting (inviting)
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first-nighting

Shimmering clouds – glimmering crowds (glittering crowds and shimmering clouds)
In canyons of steel
They’re making me feel – I’m home

It’s autumn in New York
That brings a (the) promise of new love
Autumn in New York
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
(They) All sigh for exotic lands

(But) It’s autumn in New York
It’s good to live it again

This autumn in New York
Transforms the slums into Mayfair
Autumn in New York
You’ll need no castles in Spain

Lovers that bless the dark
On benches in Central Park

(But) It’s autumn in New York
It’s good to live it again

(- in New York)

  1. I would love to visit New York in autumn, especially Central Park and maybe the mountains. It would just be fun to wander around in all that scented color!

    P.S. I had no idea there was a song called “Autumn in New York”. I’ll definitely look it up!

    • Hey engchick23, thanks for commenting! Yup Autumn in New York is a beautiful slow ballad, I have heard many versions of it–all still good!

      Central Park is stunning, so are some of the mountains upstate–beautiful fall colors!
