Third Birthday

Riverside Park South

Three years ago, NY Daily Quote was born. Instead of bringing you a new quote today, we're looking back at some of our favorite sayings from the past year:

10. "New York has always struck me as a city of survivors, of people who have succeeded largely because they have somehow managed not to be knocked by the wayside."
Stephen Birmingham, Cincinnati Magazine

9. "Living in California adds ten years to a man's life. And those extra ten years I'd like to spend in New York."
Harry Ruby, quoted in The Traveling Curmudgeon

8. "There's nothing like New York City to make you feel small—or a part of something enormous and splendid, whichever you prefer."
Vicki Myron, Dewey's Nine Lives

7. "A real New Yorker is someone who came from somewhere else where they felt like an outsider and then chose to move to New York to be around other misfits."
Susan Seifelman, New York Magazine

6. "Living in New York is a character-builder; you must know who you are, what you're doing, where you're going, and how to get there."
George Carlin, Brain Droppings

5. "I got hooked on New York before I even knew it was a drug."
Jane Borden, I Totally Meant to Do That

4. "If you are greedy for life, that's what New York is all about. If you're trying to get as much as you can every day, this city is the place to be."
Pam Nelson, My City, My New York

3. "New York, like family, will always take you back."
Cynthia Ceilan quoted in 1001 Greatest Things Ever Said About New York

2. "Welcome to New York City, a place where you fit in, no matter who you are."
Andrew Stone, Hedonist's Guide to New York

1. "New York is, of course, a lot more than a city. New York is a philosophy of life."
Christa Ludwig, In My Own Voice
