I could happily swim in the thousands of quotes about New York City by one of my favorite writers Joan Didion, but it’s hard to swim in words… unless it’s alphabet soup, of course.

“You see I was in a curious position in New York: it never occurred to me that I was living a real life there.”

“Quite simply, I was in love with New York. I do not mean “love” in any colloquial way, I mean that I was in love with the city, the way you love the first person who ever touches you and you never love anyone quite that way again.”
