Pat Benatar Rocks the Line

In what is an eerily near-perfect re-telling of my own coming-to-New York story, Pat Benatar's Love Is A Battlefield video tells the story of a runaway from small-town America, who, against all odds, fights her way through the grime-ridden dive bars of New York's oily, leather-clad underbelly, to end up dancing in the streets (where else?) under the High Line!
