A Place to Lose and Find Yourself

Times Square

"Part of living in New York—even the neighborhoods far less gaudy and circus-like than this one—is losing yourself in crowds, subsuming yourself and your better nature under the currents of the city streets. What it took me until that moment to realize was that it was also quite possible to find yourself in that same loud thrum, to become alive to yourself only when surrounded by countless others."
Andy Greenwald, Miss Misery: A Novel
