"The present in New York is so powerful that the past is lost."
John Jay Chapman
There's nowhere like it.
New York City.
The capital of the World.
Contrary to popular belief, New Yorkers aren't cold and vicious. We're blunt and honest. And while we'll knock your tourist ass down for standing in our way, we'll rally around like family in a crisis and take care of each other in a heartbeat.
We ARE crass. And tough. And desensitized. We walk with purpose - smooth straight steps - everyone's got somewhere to be. We look through you, not at you. We walk by celebrities like they're panhandlers. We think drag queens ARE the norm.
We are Sex and the City. We are Gossip Girl. We are Law & Order.
We are original and untouchable. We are the ultimate trendsetters.
We ARE cocky because – hell yeah, we ARE that great. :)
We ARE the city that never sleeps.
Ever land in JFK at night? Look down on the brightest lights ever and take a deep breath. Breathe in the air that fuels a million stories. I dare you to find that anywhere else.
We are the town of brunches with mimosas..of salons where you spend more time gossiping and sipping white wine than getting your hair done. We're the land of the insanely high heels and the too expensive handbags.
We're the place where Wall Street matters most.
We are the ultimate snob town.
We own apartments on the upper east side..and houses on the waters of the Hamptons. We pay all of our life savings away to live like this just for a few months.
I’m sure where you live is great.
I couldn’t live anywhere else in this whole wacky world.
Because, baby..NOTHING tastes like New York.
