What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open.
~ French poet Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867)
Yes yes yes. And there's Frank O'Hara too:
One need never leave the confines of New York to get all the greenery one wishes ~ I can't even enjoy a blade of grass unless I know there's a subway handy, or a record store or some other sign that people do not totally regret life.
I don't think I will ever stop feeling fortunate as hell to be here in New York.
