Golden Eggs

"When you walked along Fifth Avenue and you looked up at those towers, you felt like any one of them might lead you to the hen that laid the golden eggs."

Traumatized People

East New York (Wikipedia)

"Everyone here is broke. That's the norm here. Living in shitty Brooklyn is not the exception, you know? And here, no one really judges you. Maybe New York is good for traumatized, fucked-up people, because you don’t have time to think of yourself. There is always something going on."

No History

"This was a New York expression: not where did you meet, but how do you know. Histories don't matter, but connections do. Nobody in New York has a history. But you might be somebody important, right now."
Kelly Braffet, Josie and Jack
