Leonard Cohen was a Canadian singer-songwriter, poet, and artist who passed away back in 2016.  New York always held a special place in Leonard Cohen’s heart from when he first visited it back in 1966 where he met folk singer Judy Collins. Other big names befriended in New York included, Andy Warhol, the Velvet Underground, and German singer Nico, “whose despondent delivery he may have emulated on his exquisite 1967 album Songs of Leonard Cohen,” according to Rolling Stone. Cohen wrote many songs inspired by New York including “First We Take Manhattan” and “Chelsea Hotel #2.”
