New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made
There's nothing you can’t do

from Jay Z (Ft. Alicia Keys) – Empire State of Mind Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

New York City is commonly known as the “Concrete Jungle” due to the way that the numerous skyscrapers tower over streets like trees in a forest.

The city also represents a central hub on the east coast for people with aspirations for fame and fortune, where dreams come true… and are made up.
