New York is the true capital of America.
Every New Yorker knows it,
and by God, we always shall.
If London is a watercolor,
New York is an oil painting.
When you leave New York you ain’t going anywhere.
More than anything else New York is a city of superlatives, a place where the best, the brightest, the biggest is the norm.
– Marilyn J. Appleberg
London is satisfied, Paris is resigned, but
New York is always hopeful.
– Dorothy Parker
The city is like poetry; it compresses all life, and races into a small island and adds music and the
accompaniment of internal engines.
