On Friday, New York became the sixth state in the U.S. to legalize same-sex marriage. The District of Columbia also recognizes same-sex marriage. I’ve had that refrain of Alicia Keys belting out the “New York!!!!” refrain from Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind single since the news was announced.
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
