Streets of New York (2006) is the sixth studio album by New York City based singer/songwriter Willie Nile. This is Nile's tribute to the city that gave him international exposure to the music world through the critical eyes and ears of the New York Times. The album is a tour book of City images; The tourists, the subway, the West Side, Rivington Street, a circus at Washington Square where one meets Bo Diddley, a Broadway night out with Annie, where we encounter a saddened aging actress whose best years are far behind her. A protest and a chilling reminder of the modern dangers we all face in today's world. The album is a portrait of the maze of iron, stone, and people that makes New York so unique, while mocking its opulence; still Nile always finds his way back home to the "Streets of New York".
