There is a sense of ownership of the city that you feel when you walk to work in the morning. You can be standing at an intersection next to a model, a CEO, a street vendor, a Wall Street suit, and a bike messenger, and it's anyone and everyone's New York. It doesn't matter if the model is six inches taller and flawless, and the black suit has more money than God. It's an even playing field on the streets.
I love that everyone can say that and everyone is damn right.
