A Story to Tell

Love Affair“I live in New York. I love this city; it’s a great city. But I hate when people go, New York City: 8 million people, 8 million stories. There’s three New York stories, alright: There’s ‘I moved here,’ ‘I lived here all my life’ and Ghostbusters.” — Mike Lawrence

The Hand That Feeds

StayMatic“From above, Manhattan is just a lonely arm, squirting and bending from the big body of Brooklyn. It is not until you are inside it that you see it is the vital appendage, the hand that squeezes at the rest of the world, the muscle where everything that’s anything is made.” — Molly Prentiss

It’s Like That

It's Like That“New York is like that. It is brilliant and glittering and hard and ruthless, and a terrible cheat and a liar, but it is also full of tender little surprises, and when it’s in a giving mood, it has a lot to give. If you play your cards right, and you sweat a lot, and you pay your dues, the rewards are not sometimes, but often, beyond your wildest dreams.” — Lillian Roxon

A Good Day to Dance

A Good Day to Dance“New Yorkers are always on their feet — racing along the sidewalks, crammed together in the subways, or trudging up a five-story walk-up — but it seems that everyone in New York dances in one way or another.” — Rob Grader

World Within

Easy

“So complete is each neighborhood, and so strong the sense of neighborhood, that many a New Yorker spends a lifetime within the confines of an area smaller than a country village. Let him walk two blocks from his corner and he is in a strange land and will feel uneasy till he gets back.” — E.B. White
