Jim Croce – New York’s Not My Home
We arrived In New York City on March 16, 2010, 1500 miles after leaving Miami on March 12 at High Noon. We left Pennsylvania Station escalator to 34th Street about 8:45 AM to a cacophony of sounds, sights and people. It was The Cacophony Society.
How we felt on entering New York City.
No one tells a story, musically, better than Jim Croce, so we asked Jim to tell that story:
I can not help myself, please have a great time go to:
and hang out there for a while…
They have Croce Tee shirts , downloads and worlds of information on this Giant
of my time and legend for the ages.
I wore my Croce’s tee-shirt in the bar in Doolin Ireland the one night we were there.
They loved it. Many people told me they were going to buy it.
PS …More New York City and Pennsylvania Station trivia:
This was shot a few hours ( note the shadows) before Sean shot his “Wait For Me” Moby gem. Part of this video , i.e. the shot with the traffic officer’s ballet was shot at the same intersection as “Wait For Me” , 37th & 4th at Macy’s. In that intersection, also visualized in this video, we look from the same corner as in the “Wait For Me” Moby Feat Sean video, but looking toward the corner to our left. The Sean Feat Moby film looks to the corner on our right… Both films were shot less than a block from Pennsylvania Station, the AMTRAK station made more famous by the Glenn Miller, Tex Beneke et al 1947 song: Chattanooga Choo Choo…
See Sean’s Feat with Moby filmed at The Macy’s Intersection in New York City.
So we left New York City
on March 16, to land in Dublin at 3:50 AM, St Patrick’s day. We had to hustle to get to Waterford to be in the Waterford St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Luckily David Deegan picked us up at the airport at that ungodly hour. David, you may remember, or learn, kicked off the Blazing Horse Festival when he introduced Elder Roche to the crowd not expected to arrive, for the most part, for several hours.
