Leftovers (Metals): Ironbound - Fancy Poultry

Suzanne Vega: Ironbound - Fancy Poultry


During Metals week, I was hard at work shopping for a new file host, and making improvements to my blog. So I never got the chance to post this one.

The Ironbound section of Newark NJ is a Portugese enclave. The area takes its name from the fact that it is bounded on all sides by railroad tracks. Newark is a short trip on the PATH train from Greenwich Village, where Suzanne Vega was living when she wrote this. It is not necessary for me to describe it further; Vega does that beautifully.
