F. Scott Fitzgerald found “wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world” here. Angela Carter believed “cities have sexes: London is man, Paris is a woman, and New York is a well-adjusted transsexual.” Simone de Beauvoir confided “there is something in New York air that makes sleep useless.” Words are never enough for this city, so often evoked that even a first visit entails almost constant déjà-vu. This quintessential urban jungle delights us and tests us in equal measure; “In New York,” as Charles Bukowski reminded us, “you've got to have all the luck.”
