New York©

Before-word: Like many living in NY, I came from elsewhere. Despite all her big city woes, NYC does grow on you. You may love her or hate her but whatever your relationship with the City, you gotta admit—it’s a pretty amazing place. Right now under Covid-19, she looks and feels nothing like her usual self, but she’ll bounce back, and bounce back better, ‘cause she’s got bouncebackability!!!


She’s lights flashing
She’s noise reverberating
She’s drama unfolding
She’s concrete buildings
She’s yellow cabs hailing
She’s never sleeping
She’s New York


She’s 5th Avenue
Models and agents
Fashionistas and designers
She’s Broadway
Musicians and poets
Actors and directors
She’s Park Avenue
Cathedrals and parks
High rises and skyscrapers
She’s New York


She’s contrasting
She’s empowering
She’s dream-making
She’s mesmerizing
She’s fascinating
She’s captivating
She’s New York

Time Square, NYC (BC — Before COVID-19)
