As for New York City, it’s a place apart. There is not a match in any other country in the world. ~Pearl S. Buck~
Cut off as I am, it is inevitable that I should sometimes feel like a shadow walking in a shadowy world. When this happens I ask to be taken to New York City. Always I return home weary but I have the comforting certainty that mankind is real flesh and I myself am not a dream. ~Helen Keller~
If you want to become a real New Yorker, there’s only one rule: You have to believe New York is, has been, and always will be the greatest city on earth, the center of the universe. ~Ellen R. Shapiro
New York is the biggest collection of villages in the world. ~Alistair Cooke~
I took these photos on Saturday when we hit the pavement and walked in two of the neighborhoods in which we lived. We’re staying at the Lucerne which is located on the Upper West Side, just blocks away from
the last apartment we lived in, so once I got out on the street I was back into “the New York state of mind”.
