“Autumn in New York
Why does it seem so inviting?
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first-knighting
Shimmering clouds – glimmering crowds (glittering crowds and shimmering clouds)
In canyons of steel
They’re making me feel – I’m home…”
“Autumn in New York” was composed by Vernon Duke in 1934 for the Broadway musical Thumbs Up! which opened in December 27 of that year. Since then, many versions of the song have been recorded countless musicians and singers—the only version to achieve chart success as a single was by Frank Sinatra in 1949.
As for THIS “Autumn in New York,” well it seems to be a week or so behind. Temps will be downright “Summer Wind” for the next few days, cooling off later on in the week. Hang in there—plenty of time for Pumpkin Spice…
“It’s autumn in New York
It’s good to live it again.”
