Abigail and Lily Chapin, members of Brooklyn’s beloved musical dynasty, have released a stirring new single, “Bergen Street” (Lake Bottom Records) — a song written as the sisters were leaving Brooklyn to move back to the Hudson Valley during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“It’s a bittersweet ode. Not a sad moment, exactly, but wistful,” Lily’s sister Abigail told Grateful Web.

Abigail and Lily’s father is grammy winning singer-songwriter Tom Chapin; their late uncle is the legendary musician/activist Harry Chapin (“Cat’s In The Cradle”); and grandfather Jim Chapin was a noted jazz drummer.

“The first time I played it for my daughter, she cried,” Lily confided.

Residents of Brooklyn Heights will feel the same when they listen to the poignant tune, which can be heard on YouTube.
