Reasons to love New York.Posted: April 4, 2010
There are roughly three New Yorks.
There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born there, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size, its turbulence as natural and inevitable.
Second, there is the New York of the commuter – the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night.
Third, there is the New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something…
Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness, natives give it solidity and continuity, but the settlers give it passion.
– E. B. White, Here is New York.
Now, I rarely post articles by other people or from other sources, but I thought this was great and it made sense to publish it here. Enjoy: Reasons to love New York ’09.
