New York is a Woman



"New York is a woman, she'll make you cry
And to her you're just another guy
Look down and see her ruined places
Smoke and ash still rising to the sky
She's happy that you're here, but when you disappear
She won't know that you're gone to say goodbye."
Suzanne Vega, New York is a Woman

Fragile City

Tribute in Light (Pixabay)

"New York is such a larger-than-life city, yet 9/11 taught us that it’s no less fragile than anything else in life. After 9/11 I could no longer take the city for granted. Every minute of every day, I value it to the utmost."
Olivia Thirlby, The Daily Mail

Resilient Spirit
