New York is a great place to live for music lovers, whether your interest be jazz, classical, rock or house music.
I personally prefer the smaller stages, like The Mercury Lounge, which is just a room. You just stand there and nod to the beat, with the performer just an arm's length away.
Aretha Franklin is performing at Radio City Music Hall this September. Tickets available here.
