Wonderfully Alive



"New York is the same old place just one continual rip, tear in every conceivable direction but when one is rested and feels that he has a few dollars at the bottom of his pocket the old city is wonderfully alive and attractive."
William Carlos Williams, The Letters of William Carlos Williams to Edgar Irving Williams, 1902-1912

Phony



"New York is so phony, all you need to make it here is a few good suits and real jewelry."
Bobby Short, quoted in New York magazine
