After reading New York magazines reasons to love New York City, the special edition published last month, I thought I’d share my own reason. It’s a place we proudly hate and loudly love. We obsess over its quirks and find comfort in the strangest places. It’s a relationship we have with the city unlike any other, for this place is a stinging character of a beast unknown to all other lands. And here, old woody, king of the ode to a city, delivers the greatest film intro, a film starring and named after yours truly, Manhattan.
