“Dear, dirty, devouring New York, the capital of human faces, the horizontal Babel of human tongues.” — Paul Auster
“New York is the ultimate city to me. The diversity, the food, the culture, the constant change that is at its core—it is truly one of the most inspiring places on the planet.” — Michael Kors
“Nowhere do I feel freer than amid the crowds of New York.

“New York is the stress capital of the globe, the alarm bell that says: This is the edge of humanity, the precipice beyond which no civilization may go.” — William Randolph Hearst Jr.
“I love just walking around New York. It’s like a whole world in one place.” — Samuel Barnett
