vtravelled Playlist: A Winter Walk in Central Park

By: andrewbowman

December 10, 2010

This week we head away from the sunshine for a winter walk in the park. And where better for a seasonal stroll than the romantic centrepiece of New York City? The Big Apple has given us more than its fair share of incredible music, so this one could’ve been a hundred songs long… Here are just ten essentials: songs to the city, songs of love, songs for frosty mornings and crisp afternoons; folk-rock to doo-wop, icy strings to brittle beats.
