Misfits



"There's only one place to go—New York City. That's where you have to go to get your ideas heard. Besides, it's hard to be a misfit there because that's where all the misfits flock to. Like ninety-eight percent of the population is made up of misfits. "

Pulse of the World



"New Yorkers make a choice to endure a unique set of hardships, all for the glory of living dead smack on the pulse of the world. Rent is astronomical, the weather is bipolar, and the cost of living would make more sense as a lottery winning. The streets are dirty, and the stench of scalding trash entwines with billowing fumes of pollution to perfume the air with a scent that is exclusively ours. We inhale the contaminates just so we can exhale hope. A prideful respiration that says, hey, we are here, and you are not."

Jolly



"I think New York is a fabulous place. I think it ought to be investigated by a committee — the whole town, the twenty million people in it — for being jolly."
