Settle a trivial question, New York New York, or New York New York?

There may be no way to resolve this question (and it's not one of the great mysteries, I'll admit), but I'll take a majority consensus if that can be achieved. In the song, "New York, New York", is Sinatra effectively singing, "New York (City), "New York (State)", or is he singing, "New York (City), New York (City)"? My belief is that if the song were about, for example, Chicago, Sinatra would sing, "...I want to be a part of it, Chicago, Illinois", however I've encountered more than once the opinion that it would be equivalent to "...I want to be a part of it, Chicago, Chicago". What says the Hivemind?

NYC Recording Studio Tour?

I want to take my friend on a tour of a recording studio in the NYC area to take a friend on for his birthday. Google has come up surprisingly short. I'd prefer a recording studio that has come kind of historical importance, though I know that most of the legendary studios in NYC have moved or closed. If a historically significant studio isn't a possibility, I was hoping to find one that has recorded interesting artists in the alt/indie rock, power pop, or soul genres. [more inside]

Why is "27th Street Between 11th and 12th" Mentioned as "Off the Hook"?

In the song "Don't Get Gassed," Erick Sermon (under the name Def Squad presents Erick Onasis) delivers this line:

I'm off the hook like 27th Street between 11th and 12th / All by myself

Where in Manhattan is this referring to, specifically? What's the significance of this location?
