New York magazine published a playlist of the "most New York" songs written since 1965. The Ramones song Rockaway Beach was listed at number 6.
"As harmonic and jubilant as any Beach Boys surf classic, this is a three-chord summertime anthem for bored kids left with nothing but fire hydrants and public pools" commented NY magazine.
Thanks to LouReed.com for providing the link.
(BTW Lou himself had 3 songs on the list: 34-Coney Island Baby, 16-I'm Waiting for my Man and 2-Walk on the Wild Side).
