New York is the thing that seduced me

One of my favorite thing is finding quotes by my favorite writers and song writers about New York City. There was a great quote I saw written in Washington Square Park two summers ago almost welcoming me to the city and now, I want to share some words of wisdom from Patti Smith. Coming back to Brooklyn tonight I kept thinking these words over and over again in my head.

“New York is the thing that seduced me.
New York is the thing that formed me.
New York is the thing that deformed me.
New York is the thing that perverted me.
New York is the thing that converted me.
And New York is the thing that I love too.”

– Patti Smith, 1971
