NYC Song Of The Week- “You Don’t Know My Name” – Alicia Keys

October 23, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

There’s nothing more New York than Miss A.Keys, Mos Def and Pan Pan Restaurant on 135th Street and Lenox Ave (MalcolmX Blvd) in Harlem. Those familiar with the neighborhood know that Pan Pan, the restaurant in the video, used to be on the SW corner of the street across from Harlem Hospital (where I was born), but it burned down in November ’04-right around the time IHOP opened up a block away…just saying, but let’s not talk about that. By the time this video came out, the restaurant was already gutted, that makes it a little more  bittersweet. Pan Pan was an institution in Harlem for decades and no IHOP or McDonald’s is gonna cut it.
