thanks to rm for posting this link so early in the morning...

it's not yet midnight here in la, but the article above made me miss the nyc i once knew - changes had started long before; by 2001 nyc was someplace i visited rather than somewhere i thought of as home

i wish i could adequately describe what the city did for me when i was young and impressionable, or how much i lost there; suffice it to say there is absolutely no way i'd be who i am today were it not for the time i spent there

i'm glad that the city "came back strong" and hope that perhaps my next trip east will afford a chance for a weekend to see a show, do some shopping and enjoy a good restaurant or two
