Cat Power, "Manhattan"

Hey, can you see your favorite neighborhood spot in Cat Power's new video? Tompkins Square Park? Doyers Street in Chinatown? The basketball courts on Christie and Houston? Economy Candy on Rivington? Max Fish? The Prince Street subway station? No, you can't. Those places aren't in your neighborhood anymore because you moved to Brooklyn like all the rest of your friends. And you can never be Manhattan. Never again. You're old and you suck and you aren't even allowed to look at the moon anymore.

Since Replay in Soho closed and got replaced by Ralph Lauren, I've ceded Manhattan to Jersey even for the shopping purposes. The original Soho is on this side of East River after all (J to AirTrain to British Airways).

CP is the greatest. Indeed.
