The City That Was

And will never be again

“You’re a real New Yorker when the New York that was is more real to you than the city you’re walking through today.”

I can’t find that quote anywhere so maybe I’ll just take credit for it but I’m sure I read it somewhere. I thought it was Thomas Wolfe, but nope. Too sentimental to have been Dorothy Parker. Must have been that Remington Write character.
