The Chosen City

"We regard ourselves as The Chosen City. Our sense of exceptionalism is built on the idea that we’re blessed with more talent, grit and guts than anywhere else. In your eye, al-Qaeda! Blow yourself silly, hurricanes! Today’s horrific, inconceivable body count makes it too easy to minimize these earlier disasters. But each seemed an affront to the very qualities that make New York different — our diversity, our economic and cultural primacy, our openness to the outside world. Yet each left us economically and spiritually a stronger place."
Steve Cuozzo, The New York Post
