New York is New York

"New York—as every American who does not live there will only be too happy to tell you—is not America. New York is the Big Apple while America is a land of small cities. New York is cosmopolitan while America is rustic. New York never sleeps while America turns out the lights at nine thirty. New York is spendthrift and bohemian while America is based on the puritanical ideals of work ethic and family. In short, New York is New York while America is Lynn, Massachusetts."
