New York: Tough, Resilient, Unbowed

New York is the true capital of America.
Every New Yorker knows it,
and by God, we always shall.

Edward Rutherfurd


If London is a watercolor,
New York is an oil painting.

– Peter Shaffer

When you leave New York you ain’t going anywhere.
–  Jimmy Breslin

  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.

E.B. White
