E.B. White, ‘Here is New York’

Background

I am feeling this passage this morning:

There are roughly three New Yorks. There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born there, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size, its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter—the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night. Third, there is New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something. Of these trembling cities the greatest is the last—the city of final destination, the city that is a goal. It is this third city that accounts for New York’s high strung disposition, its poetical deportment, its dedication to the arts, and its incomparable achievements. Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness, natives give it solidity and continuity, but the settlers give it passion. And whether it is a farmer arriving from a small town in Mississippi to escape the indignity of being observed by her neighbors, or a boy arriving from the Corn Belt with a manuscript in his suitcase and a pain in his heart, it makes no difference: each embraces New York with the intense excitement of first love, each absorbs New York with the fresh yes of an adventurer, each generates heat and light to dwarf the Consolidated Edison Company… —
E.B. White, ‘Here is New York’

 

Testimony

Being losing money the last two weeks or so.  And, so I am hoping Wall Street closing for the last couple of days would have given the city its much-deserved rest.  And, that it will right its path.

      • They describe a sort of love-hate relationship that is formed between the city and many of its inhabitants. Essentially, this is an Ode to the birthplace of all members of this rap trio (Ambush, Jimmy Ink, and Syncere) since it is the source from which they draw the inspiration used to persevere through a wide array of life’s endeavors.
