Quotes:
New York is to the nation what the white spire is to the village - the visible symbol of aspiration and faith, the white plume saying the way is up!
-- E.B. White, 1962

It was a cruel city, but it was a lively one, a savage city, yet it had such tenderness; a bitter, harsh and violent catacomb of stone and steel and tunneled rock, slashed savagely with light, and roaring, fighting a constant ceaseless warfare of men and machinery?
-- Of Time and the River
Thomas Wolfe

It is an art form to hate New York City properly. So far I have always been a featherweight debunker of New York; it takes too much energy and endurance to record the infinite number of ways the city offends me.
-- The Prince of Tides
Pat Conroy

It is a miracle that New York works at all. The whole thing is implausible.
-- Here Is New York
E.B. White
