A mutant strain
"Don't you see the rest of the country looks upon New York like we're left-wing, communist, Jewish, homosexual pornographers? I think of us that way sometimes and I live here. " from Annie Hall
No question. New Yorkers are a mutant strain of human: endearing, enduring and abiding. In madness.
Returning tomorrow with City Slicker's 'Picks of New York'.
Happy Columbus Day (also known as the original rationale for Homeland Security)!
