Description

Here is a thought-provoking collection inspired by life in the world's greatest city -- like New York itself, these quotes are profound, prophetic, amusing, tough, and amazingly varied.Whether you love it or are mystified by its immensity and pace, whether you admire or disdain its athletic success or artistic and cultural offerings, New York City is a touchstone of the American spirit. It has inspired countless artists, athletes, financiers, actors, poets, novelists, designers, journalists, musicians, and architects to heights occupied by no other city in the world. Even its politicians manage to snare a disproportionate share of the national spotlight. New York City has a seemingly limitless capacity to spark both refreshingly blunt observations from the man on the street and eloquent descriptions of its daily life and motion.New York is a city of heroes, and of colorful characters found nowhere else in the world. Rich and eminently readable -- and re-readable -- "Quotable New York" is the best of their offerings.show more
