Lana Del Rey grew up Lizzy Grant in Lake Placid on the outer edges of New York State. Herein some of her unique music flavor was incubated. "It has an epic, nostalgic feel. It's in the middle of a national park that is six hours from New York City," she says. "But it's also a struggle because it's a town built on tourism that no-one goes to anymore." At 18, she fulfilled her lifelong ambition of decamping to New York City. "Since I was little I knew I would end up there," she says, "Every day is a pleasure there. Every single day I walk out of the door is a good day. I like everything about it. New York totally rewards me for my love of it."
