Being Alone

Midtown Manhattan

"New York City is often thought to be such a lonely city and there's a lot to say on that subject, but there is much more to say on the subject that New York City is a city in which you can't be alone, in which you'd pay to be alone, from the morning crowded subways, to the elevators up the skyscrapers, and the crowded offices and cubicles and bank lines and post-office lines and lunch-counter lines and movie lines and sheer rubbing shoulders with the eleven million who use Manhattan every day, what you wouldn't give to be ALONE."
Wilton Barnhardt, Emma Who Saved My Life
