We Are Sony Legacy

August 24, 2016

New York is one of the few cities in the world to rival London for the diversity and depth of its musical heritage. Around every New York corner are famous, and more hidden, histories.

Following our London Legacy Map, we’re proud to present a look at New York City, from Harlem and the Bronx, through Manhattan, Brooklyn, and down to Coney Island, as we take original, iconic shots of our favourite musicians (be they album covers, photoshoots or video stills) and superimpose them on the modern day scene. Navigate the map below and learn more about the history of the shots, and see the larger photos below.

Head on over to Popspots NYC for more brilliant images! Happy further exploring!
