The music playing over the first scene, in which Rachel stands in Times Square thrilled to be in New York City, is from George Gershwin's 1924 composition "Rhapsody in Blue." Although Gershwin wrote a great deal of classic Broadway music, this piece is more often performed by symphony orchestras; its association with New York City and Broadway instead comes from its use in the opening montage of New York scenes in Woody Allen's movie Manhattan
(1979). See more
