Citat om New York

Alla vi som älskar New York, vet att orden inte räcker till. Orden som ska fånga våra känslor för staden. Orden som ska fånga det som egentligen inte kan fångas: kärleken, svärtan, mångfalden, det unika, det lilla konkreta och det svindlande ogripbara.

Här kommer några kloka ord om staden i våra hjärtan. För mig fångar det första citatet just kärnan i min kärlek till New York:

”One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.”
Thomas Wolfe
