I’ve been in almost all of the great cities Paris, London, Barcelona, Sydney, Munich, Riyadh, Dubai, Geneva. But man there is nothing like New York.
Alan Stuart
What a brilliant artist Billy Joel is. His music is evocative, imaginative and inspiring. His talent is unequaled. My wife and I went to New York very recently for a vacation and loved it there. I sang this song every time we went out and drove her nuts..(not in a good way!)
Alfred F. Jones
I like to pretend this song is about the whole state.\n“New York State” of mind.
Angello Corvalan
My highschool is playing the marching band version of this song! So exciting!
AthensDawgs
All due respect to Sinatra, but this should be the state song.
Audcoolgirl
Wow, this song gives me all the moods! It makes me want to live in New York!😊

Billy Joel Concert, Madison Square Garden, October 1986. Mets win the NL Pennant in an extra inning affair over the Astros. He comes out late, explaining there was a ball game on, and starts playing this song. Place went nuts.

It doesn't matter where I have traveled to, there is no place on earth, like NYC!\n There is nothing in the world like seeing Billy Joel at MSG in 1980!\nI was raised across the river in Jersey, but I'm always in a New York State of Mind!😎
Chris Macdonald
The piano intro to this song is amazing.
Dan Nary
393 people are jealous bastards from Newark.
David Alexander
Billy owns this song . Nothing else to say.
David Holmes
I've heard this song before, but I didn't get it until I saw her for myself. Love at first sight, i'm a believer now.
David Morrison
Having been born and raised in NY, and living somewhere else now, I definitely get this feeling sometimes. My mom still lives in Manhattan, so I always have a place to go.
Dely Doll
Never been in New York city but I fell in love with this song.
Despina Luigini

Finding Neverland
My First night in a city that simply took my heart, I was sitting in a The Brooklyn Cafe in time square with my wife and it was lightly raining. We were drinking coffee and sharing a pastry, Then I Noticed the music playing on the P.A it was New York State Of Mind. I live in San Diego California, witch is beautiful (Americas finest city) as they call it.....and yet I never have been able to feel the same about my home. New York is truly a magical place.

Hunter Dvorak
Billy Joel is one of those artists that I feel a connection to. Some of his songs just capture my emotions and I really feel a connection. Billy Joel along with Ray Charles, Paul McCartney, Elton John, David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Milsap, Johnny Cash.
Huub Wasbauer
That piano ..... timeless song. Greetings from Holland.
JT MAV
On repeat...and I'm not even from NY. Call me crazy, but if you visit this city...just once, it is in you, and you in it. To an extent, we are all New Yorkers.
James Blaze
I am a Jersey boy, from Hackensack. Been driving east on 80 to work my whole adult life. Something about that skyline man, puts a man into a place, into a certain state of mind.
Jared Krukonis
I'm 15 years old..... This is what real music sounds like
Jeffrey Howard
Did not grow up amid so much concrete, steel, glass, brick, stone, and asphalt but New York is definitely one of the most fascinating cities I have ever been to.
John Dirt
As a southern man from Alabama. I feel a since of nostalgia to what he is singing about. I can picture him on a subway thinking about his life. I picture the big buildings lined up in a never ending maze of beauty. I picture the lights reflecting off of the river at night. Seeing every window lit up with the life of someone elses on going story. I love this song even though it doesn't reflect my history.
John Kratus
This should be New York State's official song.
Jonathan Calva
here goes one for the best city in the entire world!
Jume Leddord
BillyJoel god bless you
Just JuanGoodCitizen
every time im on the North Jersey Coast Line going to NYC from the Jersey Shore I here this song in my head. Soon as you hit Secaucus Junction, New Jersey and you see the Freedom Tower and the whole skyline that piano intro drops in my head.
Karim Mosna
You can hear the Ray Charles influence.
Kenneth Parkinson Jr.
every time I here this song it takes me back to when I was a kid back in good old philly  back in the 70\
Leo Li
It's a shame for Billboard that they underrated this song

Billy Joel, nobody does it better!
Lord Antonius71
What I don't understand is how some people aren't moved by a beautiful piece of music such as this. This is easily my favorite song of all time, and for a good reason. There are so many incredible harmonies in this song that it brings you along on the journey throughout the song. This deserves everyone of its 2.89 million views.
Meek Jahye
this make me wanna procreate

Going to NYC this weekend!
Michelle Edwards
my mother took me to see Billy Joel when I was 7 that was 40 years ago and I've never ever stopped listening to him. I know every song by heart that he's ever sang. I really love him and his music. I had forgotten just how many songs he has. where it all comes from, we'll never know but ill tell you this, he's more than awesome.
Michelle Park
Growing up and just visiting the city made me fall in love with this song. It is my favorite of all time
Mike Zito
When ever I forget how wonderful New York is and how wonderful it is to be a New Yorker. I listen to this song and count my blessings. Thanks Billy.

India Carney from The Voice brought me here! ;)

The fact that this song makes me homesick, and I'm not even from New York, speaks to the power of Billy Joel.

You can take the boy out of the city, but never the city out of the boy!!!!

New Yorkers get a bad rap from the rest of the country.  One of my best friends when I was in grad school was from Oyster Bay, Long Island.  Great guy and I miss him.  I also have a great friend from Staten Island, NY, who is now teaching in Germany.  The fact that a little old boy from the South could have good friends from the Big Apple area just goes to show that there are great people all over.  I am glad to be able to say that I count some of my best and dearest friends as being from New York.
Rachel Manor
This song and Alicia Keys song New york are perfect song metaphores for NYC. I miss those towers and the ppl who died. Forever New York City!
RaunchDressing
I moved to Southern California. Great people, beautiful weather, the Wild West. \nI moved back to New York within a year. \nBeing born and raised there - it's a part of you. No fake kindness. Brutal weather. East coast style. I'll always be in a New York state of mind.
Ray Whittington
I've been to many a piano bar in times past. You could count on the piano player to know this song if you requested some Billy Joel. Many critics say this is his greatest ever work.
Robert Andreone

Billy Joel is easily my favorite singer of all time
Stacy Steele
Anyone who has ever lived in NYC can really appreciate this song. The life of the city just gets into your bones, your soul, and doesn't let you go. There's no place like it.
Sushi Sara
i moved to ontario from new york. I got a boyfriend, and he would play this song for me on the piano because he knew how much i missed it. I would cry... I love him, and I'll always love NYC
Terry Boren
You can sit in a back yard in California and be in a New York State of mind.
TheMacaroni Bear
This song reminds me of this place called “Pier W” they play music when you eat and it’s so nice! So does piano man! 🎹 \nGreat Legendary song this guy is a Legend!
Titronnica
A wonderfully pensive song to sit back and enjoy a coffee with.

now THIS.... Is music
UncleMikeNJ
Taylor Swift, I'm not gonna let you finish. Billy Joel had the best New York song ever.\n\nFrank Sinatra's was great. Jay-Z and Alicia Keys can hold their heads high with their New York song. But Billy's is the best, and Taylor needs to sit herself down.

Regardless of whoever brought you here, Mr. Joel is going to keep you here.

Sometimes you are just in the mood to sit alone in a dark bar, with a dry martini, and just simply feel your emotions quietly drift by.

this, when NYC was a great city. now 30 yrs later just a superficial dump of crappy trendy bars, police state, with lack of true neighborhoods, character and culture sucked bone dry thanks to empty headed rich kids and developers.
riyuma1990ri
My ex is in love with New York - this song is her anthem.

I have spent best years of my life in New York. Have not been there since 2001.\nMy dad was working at WTC and my mom constantly took me to the Central Park. My child days were full of happy memories in New York.\nSometimes I like to get away from Japan.\nI'm in a New York State of mind....

I want to learn the piano. Just to be able to play the beginning of this song.
