New York Theory

North Williamsburg

"Live long enough in New York and everyone tends to develop a theory as to when New York stopped being 'New York.' This is strictly a local phenomenon. No citizen of Boston, Wichita, or Seattle has ever bothered with this sort of municipal introspection, while in New York it is compulsory to periodically rhapsodize about the days when the city was more elegant, more seedy, more avant-garde,  more soulful, more disreputable, more sophisticated, more freaky, more tolerant, more incomparable."
Tim Sultan, Sunny's Nights
