New York City doesn’t love you. Why would you think you’re in a relationship with New York? It’s not a boyfriend or a parent. New York will never give you its approval because New York City is too busy being New York City to care about you.
New York’s indifference to your plight makes you strong. Fall to your knees and thank New York for making you strong.
New York doesn’t miss me. I don’t even think New York knows I’m gone.
Whoever you are, New York will give you a hard time, and you will love it.
