Music of New York, Time for Your Closeup (again)

To say New York City has a rich history of popular music is a pronouncement pregnant with understatement: it is, after all, the birthplace of bebop, hip hop, punk rock, and salsa; not to mention its nurturing of big band swing, house, hardcore and indie rock, and of course, musical theatre.

So, how 'bout an updated, 5 borough-centric, mini series on the subject? Sorta what Dave Grohl is doing with Sonic Highways on HBO but solely concentrated on NYC? In the right hands it could be all kinds of awesome.
