The long awaited video with Jay-Z and Alicia Keys for Empire State of Mind is finally here. The initial buzz began when the video crew began shooting in Harlem on 145th and Broadway weeks ago. There were celebrity sightings and some of our Twitter followers even stopped by to give us an on the scene play by play. [Follow Us @AroundHarlem]

I was definitely looking forward to the video. Alicia Keys’ lyrics below sum up everything that I’ve always said about New York. I joke that if I hadn’t been born here, I’d definitely be on of those who would have left home to come here.

New York!!!!
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York!!!
These streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York

One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
no place in the World that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeaaahh
come on, come,

[Full Lyrics]

Video Bonus: Empire State of Mind performed at the New York Yankees World Series Game
