Alicia Keys: This is my favorite window to stare through. I'd spend hours admiring the pianos, dreaming of the day I'd be able to buy one. I'd go in to smell it, I didn't dare play one, in case they'd kick me out!
Alicia Keys: One of the few nice things about growing up in Hell's Kitchen is hanging out at the pier. The view of the Hudson review at sunset is so peaceful and absolutely breathtaking. The water always calms me.

Alicia Keys: Mom didn't have much, but she always gave me what I needed. I respect & appreciate her for that! Dance lessons were a world of discovery & discipline. I took Ballet, Dunham & tap here. Not bad huh?;-)
