We here at Across 106th Street have to show our respect and love for the great Bobby Womack who died on Friday, June 27, 2014. We hope that Womack knew how much his music meant to so many people around the world, including these two 106thstreeters who loved the music so much it inspired the name for this blog. Though 110th Street may not be such a hell of a tester these days, it remains one of main arteries pulsing through the heart of East Harlem. And as always in New York City, you’ve still got to be strong if you want to survive. Live on Bobby Womack.
