“The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” (1966)
"The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy" was a Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel hit from the album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (1966).

The song has no New York City details in it besides the title. Simon & Garfunkel came from New York and performed many New York-themed songs, such as "Sounds of Silence."
