About "New York, New York"

"New York, New York" is a song from the 1944 musical On the Town and the 1949 MGM musical film of the same name. The music was written by Leonard Bernstein and the lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. A well known line of this song is:

New York, New York, a helluva town. The Bronx is up but The Battery's down.

For the film version, the word "helluva" was changed to "wonderful" to appease the Production Code offices. In the film, the song was performed by Gene Kelly, Jules Munshin, and Frank Sinatra. In 2004, the film version finished at No. 41 in AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

It is not to be confused with the "Theme from New York, New York", originally performed by Liza Minnelli and later popularized by Sinatra ("Start spreadin' the news, I'm leaving today"). However, in his Concert for the Americas performance, Sinatra sang this song as the verse for his more famous "Theme from New York, New York."
