Return to New York

"It was equally exquisite to return to New York. The city—yes, even the old, crummy, loud, chaotic city—had become new, especially the parts of it that I hadn't experienced much before. Saint Marks was like being transported to another world, to a smattering of weirdness that looked like it belonged in Tokyo. It was a strip of neon lights, the awnings cluttered next to one another, the colorful signs selling psychic readings, comics, socks, records, piercings, wigs, foot massages. And yet, I was walking through it with such euphoria. Escaping the city is easy, but there is no known cure for how good it feels to come back."
Leslie Cohen, This Love Story Will Self-Destruct
