“Ev’ry Street’s a Boulevard in Old New York” (1953)
"Ev'ry Street's a Boulevard in Old New York" appeared in the musical Hazel Flagg (1953) and the movie Living It Up (1954). The music is by Jule Styne and the lyrics are by Bob Hilliard.

Dean Martin sang a popular version. The song was a hit in its time, but is not remembered as much today.

The song is under copyright protection and the lyrics cannot be reproduced here.
