New York. My goodness, I don't even know where to start.
Just say the name out loud a couple of times and your heart beats faster. There isn't a city that calls up more images, more emotions, more feelings and icons. Whether it is the New York of the movies (and whether those movies are On the Town or Mean Streets), the New York of culture (the Metropolitan Museum of Art or a no-name punk joint in the Village) or the New York of history (your immigrant relatives at Ellis Island or the sadness of 9/11), it is all here.
In the city that never sleeps, who cares if the kids stay up late?
