"New York wasn't Philadelphia or Boston. New York was a casino where anyone could play. You needed only to have the chips and sufficient chutzpah."

State of Mind

"New York doesn't make or break your day; she doesn't affect your mood. She just reflects the state of mind you're in. If you're having a bad morning she’ll do all she can to lift every paving stone to trip you up, if you're having a good afternoon she'll send every good-looking guy in a ten-mile radius to walk by you and give you a sexy smile."

"New York is not a romantic city. It does not choose to be. Romance is soft; so are Paris, Venice."
