The True New Yorker

The True New Yorker

This quote by John Updike was part of my change of address card 13 years ago, when I decided to stay in NYC longer than just the initially planned 3 months. Congrats to the designers Michael Tabie and Karen Goheen of Two Arms Inc.

Isn’t it supposed to say “The True New Yorker *secretely* believes…”

  1. I feel the same way… about living in Hawaii :)

  2. Yep. Feel the same way … about living in San Francisco :)

  3. It is a strange thing to think that spending most of your time in a certain place is somehow indicative of your character.

  4. Hey there,

    I think everyone who lives for a long time in his city feels like the New York people ;-)

    A very nice picture with a nice quote!

    Greetings from Germany!

  5. As a long time Brooklynite/NYC person I dislike this mentality. The attitude that people who don’t live here are just not quite as good is all too pervasive and real—I constantly hear snarky comments about people who live in the suburbs, or elsewhere. I think we’d all do well to shed that crap and focus on connecting with good people everywhere.

  6. P.S. I realize that this poster is said with a wink, but it still rubs me the wrong way.

  7. Haha.. Love this. I feel the same way about L.A.

  8. I reallly like it when folks come together
    and share opinions. Great blog, stick with it!
