The Stockholm street style is distinctive, with ensembles that exemplify the city’s understated elegance.
I think ‘Humans’ is more about provoking the idea that there is a class of beings in society that we treat as less than… as subordinates; people who we treat badly and take for granted. Often they are the same people who work hard to keep the city going. We need to think about that.
One city can look at other cities relative to their city and learn something. It’s a matter of sharing the patterns of what exists in one society based on landscape or cultural values versus other cities.
When I moved to New York City in 1965, I wanted to be in theater. I was following my Ethel Barrymore dream. But I was too young to be Ethel.

There’s an examination for young people to go to university. I failed it three times. I failed a lot. So I applied to 30 different jobs and got rejected.

New York City has finally hired women to pick up the garbage, which makes sense to me, since, as I’ve discovered, a good bit of being a woman consists of picking up garbage.
When I was growing up, Belfast City Hall was surrounded by security, and we had no access to it. But now, people come in and out of it all the time. On a nice day, office workers and students sit on the lawn outside and have lunch. It’s great to see how Northern Ireland has changed. To be part of that is fantastic.
I was born in a big city – Ivano-Frankivsk in Ukraine – but when I was a child, my father moved us back to his homeland in Minsk.
I could never leave Las Vegas. I can’t really afford New York or Los Angeles. I love this town. We don’t have that much. We have the Runnin’ Rebels and boxer Floyd Mayweather. When Mayweather fights, it’s good for the whole city. It’s like the Super Bowl out here.
Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.

Rules about public sanitation are a simple and familiar example. Without them, a city can’t be a healthy place to live; but these rules don’t just happen. The rules for a city are different from the ones for a village, but as a village slowly gets bigger, a city may be stuck with the rules of the village.
I think after 1970 or so, after I sold Soul City, I took off for awhile and didn’t do too many gigs.
Hong Kong is different to mainland China. We protect our freedoms. We ask for free elections to elect the leader of our city.
The suburb in the 1950s was a bedroom community. The father worked in the city, and the mother stayed home. Now people live and work in the suburbs, and businesses have grown up or moved from cities to certain pockets of what was once the suburbs and created these places that are like cities.
When I was in Barcelona, people thought I would join them, but that’s not the case. Everyone knows that I think Barcelona is a beautiful club, but I don’t know if I should see my career as a city trip.

The great city is that which has the greatest man or woman: if it be a few ragged huts, it is still the greatest city in the whole world.
Richard Pryor introduced me to the world of the inner city, and the urban world, and did it hysterically. My favorite comedian, even though we work 180 degrees differently, but funny is funny is funny.
One of the things I love about ‘Rubicon’ is I really recognize the New York City that they’re depicting in it, having lived here for 15 years.
I had a mild case of polio – not enough to put me in an iron lung, but enough to keep me bedridden for weeks. As I came out of it, my mom wanted to do something for me. She realized that, growing up in the city, I’d missed out on a lot of nature.

Knowing that more people associate Chicago with street violence than generosity is difficult for me because, despite all my proclamations of being from the Bay Area, I have spent much of my life in Chicago. So I have a deep love and a pretty good understanding of the city.
It’s such a great city, visually. You can’t get that kind of look in Canada that you can get in Boston: the old-brick historical buildings, the winding streets, the old but funky neighborhoods like Southie and Somerville. You can’t get that elsewhere. It’s a very unique place in that way.
When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was to escape what I thought was the country and get to a city. Probably film and television had influenced me so much, I really thought the key to happiness was living a very artificial life in a penthouse in New York with martini glasses.
College is a magic time. Yes, you’re young and fickle, but you want to be part of this college experience… Then you graduate from that. You have your first job, moving to a new city.
I’m conflicted with theater in the city because you want to reach a diverse audience, and that audience doesn’t typically go to the theater.

It’s about how to bring together the seemingly contradictory aspects of the memorial, which is about a tragedy and how it changed the world, but also about creating a vital and beautiful city of the 21st century.
We should concentrate our work not only to a separated housing problem but housing involved in our daily work and all the other functions of the city.
Japan, not only a mega-busy city that thrives on electronics and efficiency, actually has an almost sacred appreciation of nature. One must travel outside of Tokyo to truly experience the ‘old Japan’ and more importantly feel these aspects of Japanese culture.
I’m from Kansas City, Missouri. No one has to give a damn about my story.
I live in Harlem, New York City. I am unmarried. I like ‘Tristan,’ goat’s milk, short novels, lyric poems, heat, simple folk, boats and bullfights; I dislike ‘Aida,’ parsnips, long novels, narrative poems, cold, pretentious folk, buses and bridges.
This City is what it is because our citizens are what they are.
Times have been tough, the economy has been tough. But I want to bring forward a fantastic manifesto for taking the city forwards.

Anyone who wants to look at sunlight naturally wipes his eye clear first, in order to make, at any rate, some approximation to the purity of that on which he looks; and a person wishing to see a city or country goes to the place in order to do so.
My boyhood life in New York City has impressed me with the popular ignorance and also with the great need of something better than local lore and weather proverbs.
I believe that in a great city, or even in a small city or a village, a great theater is the outward and visible sign of an inward and probable culture.
The truth is that Oxford is simply a very beautiful city in which it is convenient to segregate a certain number of the young of the nation while they are growing up.
The architect aspires to build in a city as the artist aspires to exhibit his works in a museum.
Order is the sanity of the mind, the health of the body, the peace of the city, the security of the state. Like beams in a house or bones to a body, so is order to all things.

But with rap music – not just N.W.A. – but rap music in general, seeing these artists wearing these team logos all the time started bringing a synergy and energy about having to rep your city, your team, everywhere and all the time.
While Mayor Daley surprised me today with his decision to not run for reelection, I have never been surprised by his leadership, dedication and tireless work on behalf of the city and the people of Chicago.
Right now I’m living my boyhood dream, which was to play for a European club. The fact that it’s a huge club like Barcelona makes it a tremendous honour. I like everything about the city: the climate, the people. It’s quite similar to Brazil, which helps a lot. There’s even a beach!
The thing about Chicago is that it really isn’t like any other place. The architecture and the layout of the city are the best. I’m from the Midwest, and consider myself a Midwesterner. I feel most at home there. I love California. I have great friends in California. I just have always considered Illinois to be home.
I mean, people need to remember without the grassroots, Ronald Reagan probably doesn’t become president of the United States of America and he worked the grassroots on a regular basis during his political career and especially between the years of 1976 and 1980 after the loss in Kansas City.
The weather is the worst. I lived many years in Lisbon and then went to Monaco, places that are similar in terms of weather and food. In Manchester, it’s eight or nine months of cold, and that makes a difference, but apart from that, I’m really enjoying the city.
Conquer your neighbourhood, conquer your city, conquer your country, and then go after the rest of the world. That’s my mantra.
It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.
Havana is one of the great cities of the world, sublimely tawdry yet stubbornly graceful, like tarnished chrome – a city, as a young Winston Churchill once wrote, where ‘anything might happen.’
I studied Shakespeare at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, and ‘Orange’ was my first audition ever for TV or film.
I’m happy being at City. I wanted to go to Porto before but my father said that coming here we would have a great future. It was the right decision.
Touring is very routine. You get to the city, you go to the hotel, you got to be at the hotel by a certain time – it’s very routine. I’m not a very structured person, so when I get some structure, it’s cool; it’s good for me.
I did not come from an academic background. My father was a smart man, but he had a fifth-grade education. He and all his friends were plumbers. They were all born around 1905 in great poverty in New York City and had to go to work when they were 12 or 13 years old.
I think in the old days, the nexus of weirdness ran through Southern California, and to a degree New York City. I think it’s changed so that every bizarre story in the country now has a Florida connection. I don’t know why, except it must be some inversion of magnetic poles or something.
A city is a place where there is no need to wait for next week to get the answer to a question, to taste the food of any country, to find new voices to listen to and familiar ones to listen to again.
In Edna, I created a satiric portrait of my hometown of Melbourne, a large provincial English city paradoxically in far Southeast Asia. She’s a theatrical figure, related to vaudeville in some respects. She inhabits a world in which there are comparatively few female exponents of comedy.
I’m a believer in forgiveness. I have worked with people who have been in gangs and now dedicate their lives to helping inner city kids. I’ve run offender services with teachings of responsibility, empathy and understanding of the victims at their heart. I’ve seen people change.
After the destruction of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the shutdown of much of New York City by Sandy in 2012, and now the devastation wrought on Texas by Harvey, the U.S. can and should do better.
We thought we’d name the magazine for the number of bridges within Edmonton’s city limits. We thought this number was 18. Much later, we learned that the number is actually 21. But we didn’t like the sound of that so much.

Earthshaking fire from the center of the Earth will cause tremors around the New City. Two great rocks will war for a long time, then Arethusa will redden a new river.
Every day, in every city and town across the country, police officers are performing vital services that help make their communities safer.
I love Pushkar because of the Pushkar Fair, which happens every fall – it’s this camel festival, with ornately-dressed camels, camel races. But the reason I truly love this city is the Hindu mythology behind it.
Whenever I’m in Kansas City, I think back to all the jazz-blues greats who played the blues here – like Count Basie, Charlie Parker and Jay McShann. I watched those guys jam in different places and heard a lot of things – but I couldn’t do what they did. They were too good.
My real personality comes out in the country. More spontaneous, more excited. There’s always someone watching you in the city – you’re a sort of zoo animal. My true nature is to want to hide a bit.
I moved away when I was young, when I was about 19. I’d literally come from an area with dirt roads and stuff like that, right to the centre of a city of about five million people. It’s been great. I’m based in New York, and every day, it’s amazing.
St. Petersburg is a wonderful city. You have wonderful parks, birds singing in the trees, manatees in the water, pelicans. So it’s like this little paradise on Earth.
The Goose Fair was the cornerstone of the city’s year. The smell of fairs is amazing: deep-fried donuts, hot dogs, the frying of onions. You never wanted to eat all your baby pink candyfloss – it was so sickly sweet – but seeing it made with a stick around the barrel was like magic.
Especially in local elections, because hardly anybody pays attention to those – but it’s really important who’s mayor and who’s on the city council, county commissioners, sheriffs, district attorney, and of course the school board.
Each year, every city in the world that can should have a multiday festival. More people meeting each other, digging new types of music, new foods, new ideas. You want to stop having so many wars? This could be a step in the right direction.
Buenos Aires is an incredibly kind of fragrant city, a beautiful city to look at, and it has the old and the new.
A city is a crazy concrete jungle whose people at the end of each day somehow make a small step ahead against terrible odds.
I grew up on Don Knotts and Jerry Lewis and all the guys from Second City.
SP is the only party which can put in efforts for the development of the State. Therefore, I request Kanpurites to vote for the SP candidate and ensure progress of the city.
I’m very happy at City, very happy since the day I came. I knew that the project was good, and in my head, there is nothing else but Manchester City, so how long I’m going to be at City is just never a question.
From the ages of five to twelve, I attended the Saint Laurence O’Toole elementary school in Lawrence, a city next to Methuen, and was taught by sisters of the Catholic order of Notre Dame de Namour. I enjoyed all my subjects there. I do not remember ever learning any science, except for mathematics.
Just two days in Manhattan and you find yourself looking for a place to wash your handkerchief after you wipe your forehead and it comes away black. Is there a dirtier or more fascinating city anywhere in the land? The answer to both parts of the question has to be positively negative.
We lived in the bowels of New York City. It was a struggle just to survive. This nice suburban kid hadn’t had to do much of that before.
Look at our Lords disciples. One denied Him; one doubted Him; one betrayed Him. If our Lord couldn’t have perfection, how are you going to have it in city government?
Madrid is a big and beautiful city with great parks where I like to walk. There are a lot of squares and museums, historic monuments. But I’m more a home guy; I feel most comfortable there with my wife and kids. We play, watch cartoons, like all families do.
I am a dude who is meant to be on a couch in New York City thumbing through magazines.
I think unleashing 3,000 smart bombs against the city of Baghdad in the first several days of the war… to me, if those were unleashed against the San Francisco Bay Area, I would call that an act of extreme terrorism.
As a developer, it’s a great feeling knowing you have made an impact. There’s also a lot of responsibility that goes with that: you have to really put the city’s needs first. It’s not all about making money.
I enjoy coming to Ahmedabad. The city is really awesome and people here are warm and hospitable.
I’m from a city where the tears never end and the pain never stops.
Perhaps no country in Latin America is more picturesque than Bolivia, and the most memorable Bolivian city may be Potosi.
I moved to New York City from Texas in 2007, where I lived for two years. Before that, I lived in South Carolina for the majority of my life.
City showed me their ambition to be one of the biggest clubs in the world, and I was happy to join.
I go to Paris, I go to London, I go to Rome, and I always say, ‘There’s no place like New York. It’s the most exciting city in the world now. That’s the way it is. That’s it.’
As the mayor of London, my highest priority is keeping Londoners and visitors to our city safe from harm.
The fact that over 50 per cent of the residents of Toronto are not from Canada, that is always a good thing, creatively, and for food especially. That is easily a city’s biggest strength, and it is Toronto’s unique strength.
It’ll be interesting to raise kids in New York City. I’m from suburbia, so I don’t really have any experience with what it’s going to be like here.
In the country the darkness of night is friendly and familiar, but in a city, with its blaze of lights, it is unnatural, hostile and menacing. It is like a monstrous vulture that hovers, biding its time.
Quebec City is the most European of any city in North America; they speak French all the time. There is a part of town called Old Quebec which is really like being in France. The architecture is just gorgeous, food, shopping. I’d say Quebec City is the most beautiful city in North America I’ve seen.
In the 1990s, we introduced Boston’s community policing strategy. We reversed the tide of violent crime that threatened our city, and we established a national model for preventing and fighting crime.
What we have to learn from Singapore is multiculturalism or clearly having the aspect of a global city.
As kids, we all wanted a bike. But a lot of people don’t have that opportunity, especially in the inner city.
I think water transport will see a revival. However, we’re not going to replay the 20th century. The industrial city of that era will not be revived. Our cities are going to contract. Many of them will contract as a whole but densify at their core.
Five and forty steps the sky will burn. Fire approaching the large new city. Instantly a great thin flame will leap, when someone will want to test the Normans.
I feel absolutely no threat or fear in Mexico City.
The beauty standards had nothing to do with me in Mexico. It was such a bizarre, dire time for my hair. I was living in a small town where there was not any semblance of an African community. I’d have to take the bus to Mexico City to find a woman who could braid my hair. That was two and a half hours away.
In London, you’ll be walking around and, ‘Oh, there’s the ground.’ Every area of the city has a Premier League club. They all survive; they all exist with enough money, and that’s good.
If a sanctuary city means that our police department does not enforce federal immigration laws, then we are one. But declaring yourself a ‘sanctuary city’ also signals to a lot of people that you are protecting hard-core criminals, which I don’t, and I don’t believe in.
Glasgow is a great city.
The nameless loser in Jay McInerney’s ‘Bright Lights, Big City’ is going to the dogs like a gentleman. He is too smart to blame anyone for the impasse he has come to, hip enough to know he does not know enough, too sophisticated to masquerade as an anti-hero.
After the Berlin Wall came down I visited that city and I will never forget it. The abandoned checkpoints. The sense of excitement about the future. The knowledge that a great continent was coming together. Healing those wounds of our history is the central story of the European Union.
For Parisian women, it’s not about looks; it’s not about style – for me, it’s more about this beautiful city, culture, and lifestyle. It’s more about attitude – style it your own way.
Paris is a city that liberates you as a woman from all your sins that you think you are guilty of; it washes away all of that, and you are free.
It’s nice coming to Nashville, and we have four-bedroom house and a dog, and we go swimming a lot. We get down here and spread out a lot, and I miss my sweet tea and my cornbread and my good southern cooking – but I’m down here eating pretty for two weeks and I’m ready to go back to New York City.
The city can be the loneliest place of all.
When we look at the investment decisions into the city of Compton, the small business community and global corporations and retailers and all of those types of services that decide to come into the community to serve it, they look at the perception, how does the brand work with the local community.
Being brave is what led to three rejections from Yale Law School before being accepted. It led to losing my 2010 race for U.S. Congress, and another failed bid for public office in 2013, this time for public advocate of New York City.
The thing about Memphis is that it’s pleasingly off-kilter. It’s a great big whack job of a city. The anti-Atlanta. You go there, and you can’t believe the things people will say, the way they think, the wobbling orbits of their lives. There’s an essential otherness.
I’m a bit of a Scotophile. I have a house on the Black Isle, so I’m in Scotland quite a lot and think Edinburgh is just the most beautiful city.
I was born in Compton, raised all through the city of Los Angeles.
The City gets more and more beautiful every time I come home.
I love the book ‘Devil in the White City.’
Very early on, when I started doing these plays and live shows, I would travel from city to city, and there were a million shows out there… so I wanted to step out among it, and I started putting my name above the title.
In the 1970s and early ’80s, Shanghai was quiet, cautious, a ghost of a once-great city – and yet physically, little was changed from its glittering heyday. When visiting, I enjoyed reading books on local history and used my time off to scope out the former haunts of gangsters and jazzmen.
I watch a lot of Liverpool and Manchester City.
I would like to run for the mayor of the city of Chicago. That has always been an aspiration of mine even when I was in the House of Representatives.
I was born on December 30, 1930 in Ningbo, a city on the east coast of China with a rich culture and over seven thousand years of history. Although it was a tumultuous age in China when I was a child, I was lucky enough to have completed a good education from primary to middle school.
Being in New York is an almost overwhelming experience. While Washington, D.C., is my favorite American city, I regard New York City as the most amazing city in the world. No other comes close. It is an incredible, inexhaustible engine.
I often have deer on my property and there’s a fox and owls. You’re not going to see that in the city.
Imagine a safe city with all the affordable housing we need, a city that uses its resources to help lift the marginalized up and into stability. This is the Portland I imagine. This is the Portland I dream about every single day.
People often accuse me of being serious. Have I played serious roles in ‘Honeymoon Travels’ and ‘Sankat City?’ It is just that after the films were made, producers did not have money to bombard it all over the place.
I picked Harvard because it was in a big city, and a lot of girls’ schools were nearby. And I liked President Kennedy, who went to Harvard.
New York City is home to so many people from so many places and the uniqueness of it is that you never feel a foreigner. English is almost hardly ever heard in the subway. In fact, it’s weird.
A little before noon I sent orders to all my batteries to open fire through the streets or at any points where the troops were seen about the city, as a diversion in favor of Jackson.
I will be the personal bodyguard for every investment in my city. If Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary can transform, then so can Ukraine.
My piece in One World or None was the description of the effect of a single atomic bomb on New York City.
In February of 1972, a snowstorm blew into Kansas City, and I decided to hitchhike to California. The roads were icy, snowflakes howling, and nobody would drive me to the highway, so I humped through the snow and ice and caught a ride with a concerned cop to the Kansas Turnpike.
We have to be ready to confront the risks that the terrorists and others present to our city and those risks are unique in any nation’s capital.
Traveling, you realize that differences are lost: each city takes to resembling all cities, places exchange their form, order, distances, a shapeless dust cloud invades the continents.
A mayor is a symbol and a public face of what a city bureaucracy provides its citizens.
Because I’m seen on ‘Oz’, a lot of the urban cats in the city are like, ‘Yo, I thought you’d be rolling in a Mercedes?’ And I’m just like, ‘Not at all!’ This is cable money. There is a big difference between that and a network. But still I can’t complain. It’s better than doing a 9 to 5 any day.
I’m from Buffalo, which is a blue-collar city, and I’ve kind of embraced that.
I like Copenhagen, just because my shows there have been really good for some reason. Not that I love the city itself, but every time I play there it feels amazing. Pretty nice people there.
I am not a BART regular but have taken it probably five times to and from the city with some of my teammates. Nice to just hop on the train and enjoy some of the views of the Bay Area while I’m out.
There is no city in the country with nil incidence of crime. We have to look into the crime rate in proportion to the population figures.
When I first encountered the name of the city of Stockholm, I little thought that I would ever visit it, never mind end up being welcomed to it as a guest of the Swedish Academy and the Nobel Foundation.
It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.
I was at Second City L.A., going through the conservatory, and I graduated in 2004 and I got ‘SNL’ in 2005.
Los Angeles is much like Mumbai, the film industry rules the city over most other professions, so it feels like home.
I was born and raised in New York City, Manhattan, uptown.
Tonight the city is full of morgues, and all the toilets are overflowing. There’s shopping malls coming out of the walls, as we walk out among the manure. That’s why I pay no mind.
Why should we build very large spaces when they are not necessary? We can design halls spanning several kilometres and covering a whole city, but we have to ask, what does it really make? What does society really need?
I may be a lifelong ‘downtowner,’ but Central Park really is the most amazing and the most beautiful part of New York City.
I’m a New Yorker. I was there during 9/11, and I saw how, not only New York City stopped for a moment, we all took an inhale and exhale at the same time – the world united at that time, and it changed my life. I think millions of people were forever changed.
For starters, Portland isn’t a great city to live in if you’re a young, African American male with a lot of money. But that’s especially true if you don’t have anybody to guide you.
Never take an elevator in city hall.
The border is safe; it’s secure. El Paso is the safest city in America. Let’s own that. Let’s be proud of that. And then, I think, good policy can follow from that, better outcomes included.
I didn’t go to school for illustration. I did larger pieces, mostly drawings and paintings, and minored in video, but when I moved to N.Y.C., I didn’t have a studio space anymore and downsized to my desk and started illustrating. I started a greeting card company and sold cards all over the city.
Being the mayor of the third largest city in the country, that’s humbling, but it also gives me incredible hope.
Suppose Watergate had not been uncovered? I’d still be on the City Desk.
In my first 100 days as Ontario’s Minister of Transportation, I found a willing municipal partner in the City of Toronto that shares our goal of better, faster transit.
It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone.
We are the safest large city in America, but any crime rate is too high.
It was fun working with Will Smith; it was fun working with Alex Proyas, who is another sci-fi guy with ‘Dark City.’
I remember my grandmother taking me and my sisters to the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. We would watch the diving bell and see the diving horse jump into the pool. We would take the bus there, and I just smile thinking about all of us running around the pier on those days.
I love filming in London. In New York, every street is familiar because you have seen it in a movie. They mythologise their own city. You’re forever trying to get down streets that have been blocked off because of shooting. In London, they don’t put up with it; they’re grumpy.
There is no place in a city that can’t be better. There is no toad that can’t be a princess, no frog that can’t become a prince.
My label is to play bad guys of Latin origin in American movies. I’m happy with that label. I prefer to play that than to play a city boy. The bad guy is always something very tempting for the audience.
The three books I’ve written in Florida about L.A. are my best takes on the physicality of the city, as far as description goes.
This city will be chocolate at the end of the day. This city will be a majority-African-American city. It’s the way God wants it to be. You can’t have New Orleans no other way.
To me, Berlin is as much a conceit as a reality. Why? Because the city is forever in the process of becoming, never being, and so lives more powerfully in the imagination.
You probably don’t need more weapons than what’s required to destroy every city on earth. There’s only 2,300 cities. So, the United States, by that criteria, only needs 2,300 nuclear weapons – well, we’ve got more than 25,000!
I live in New York City, the stories of my films take place in New York; I’m a New York filmmaker.
I am grateful to be here, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity Manchester City gave me.
The story that I wanna tell is pretty much about the way I grew up. Being bi-racial, growing up in a big city and being an artist.
I am making this trip to Africa because Washington is an international city, just like Tokyo, Nigeria or Israel. As mayor, I am an international symbol. Can you deny that to Africa?
Chicago seems a big city instead of merely a large place.
I think Sydney has so much natural beauty; it’s just a beautiful city.
They have seized upon the government by bribery and corruption. They have made speculation and public robbery a science. They have loaded the nation, the state, the county, and the city with debt.
A visit to Marrakesh was a great shock to me. This city taught me color.
Since being elected to the City Council, I have been unwavering in my commitment to address issues uniquely impacting women and girls and advance policies that stabilize and strengthen our communities.
It is more difficult to rule yourself than to rule a city.
The dangers of TATP bombs can be seen in the case of Matthew Rugo and Curtis Jetton, 21-year-old roommates in Texas City, Texas. They didn’t have any bomb-making training and were manufacturing explosives in 2006 from concentrated bleach when their concoction blew up, killing Rugo and injuring Jetton.
A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.
My girlfriend Siri is a food blogger, and we both love to entertain and eat. This is what happens when you’re in your thirties: what was once a passion and real appetite for nightlife in New York City manifests itself into other things, like entertaining at home.
The most important thing is to find the balance between city and nature. I have that ‘hippie quality’ – my husband is a super-hippie Los Angeles boy – so we’ll have to make time to go to Puerto Rico, and upstate New York, and be sure we get to do outdoorsy stuff like that.
The most important thing a mayor does is hire talented people to run the city.
It doesn’t matter if you come from the inner city. People who fail in life are people who find lots of excuses. It’s never too late for a person to recognize that they have potential in themselves.
I’d love to go and visit the Mosque in Mecca again, just for the sheer beauty of it, not for God – much the way a non-Catholic might go to Vatican City because of the beauty of the buildings and the artifacts.
In the year since we brought things into the open with a clean breath of fresh air at City Hall, we have learned about corrupt spending practices and unethical conflicts of interest that waste your money… and keep Dallas from being the great city of our dreams.
Growing up in Buffalo, I saw shuttered factories that once housed thousands of steel manufacturing jobs. I remember the hollowing-out of the middle class in our community. I witnessed hope turn to hardship as a once-thriving city reckoned with a fast-changing world.
In the city a funeral is just an interruption of traffic; in the country it is a form of popular entertainment.
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.
Although I grew up in London, I spent summers in Missouri, where my dad lived. It’s quite a liberal town, Kansas City. You’d be surprised.
Inner city education must change. Our responsibility is not merely to provide access to knowledge; we must produce educated people.
My company is called East-West Theatre precisely because Sarajevo is this city on the border between East and West, the place where the Great Mosque and the Catholic Cathedral and the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral stand almost within touching distance of each other.
A beautiful city is Richmond, seated on the hills that overlook the James River. The dwellings have a pleasant appearance, often standing by themselves in the midst of gardens. In front of several, I saw large magnolias, their dark, glazed leaves glittering in the March sunshine.
I grew up in London, a city devastated by the bombing. I am, you might say, a Blitz Baby.
In New York City, the meek don’t inherit the earth. The big mouth does.
I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in.
I lived on my own when I was living in New York City when I was 18, working on a show. And that definitely kind of grows you up a little faster than a normal 18-year-old in college, so I think so. I think I’ve got some street smarts.
I was born in the shadow of World War II, on December 18, 1939, on the South Shore of Long Island, a product of the early -wentieth-century emigration of Eastern European Jewry to New York City and its environs.
I spent a majority of my life in Kansas City, so I am a Chiefs and Royals guy. I used to work for the Royals for like five years in the suites department and in the stadium club restaurant.
Even in this globalised world, London is still the standard for our times. The city has embraced the world’s diversity and represents the finest in human achievements.
A city is a state – of mind, of taste, of opportunity. A city is a marketplace – where ideas are traded, opinions clash and eternal conflict may produce eternal truths.
Edinburgh is a sort of gothic fairytale city, and it can be a gothic horror city as well.
Chicago is not the most corrupt American city. It’s the most theatrically corrupt.
New York was no mere city. It was instead an infinitely romantic notion, the mysterious nexus of all love and money and power, the shining and perishable dream itself.
‘Hound Dog’ took like twelve minutes. That’s not a complicated piece of work. But the rhyme scheme was difficult. Also the metric structure of the music was not easy. ‘Kansas City’ was maybe eight minutes, if that. Writing the early blues was spontaneous. You can hear the energy in the work.
I moved to New York City in the ’80s to be an actress and to be on Broadway. That was always my dream.
That’s a little homage in a way to that and also to create that sort of creepy atmosphere that Hitchcock did. Vertigo was one of his great movies that was shot right here in The City and it’s about a woman and the psychological twists and so forth.
Particularly the mark for success for us would be that a woman can not only walk in the streets of every major city, but can go from one province to another without any hindrance.
If you read the poets of the 19th century in Latin America, you would see that Havana or Mexico City or Buenos Aires are incredibly modern and global cities that they were not. And eventually they became real, and they became real because people read these books and tried to live in a better world.
There’s an expression in Australia that’s called ‘Go Bush,’ which means to get out of the city and relax. I try and ‘go bush’ to places where there’s no cell reception. But, I don’t get to do that often, so for the most part, it’s just a state of mind.
Pompeii was an incredibly corrupt city. Pompeii was the Las Vegas of the Roman Empire.
Because the nights bring the threat of invasion and terror to the villages, thousands of children in northern Uganda have become night commuters, leaving the nightmare of capture behind for the safety of the city.
There is a heavy-ego, solitary model of being an elected leader. We’ve certainly seen that in some other mayors of this city… I have much more of a Movement mentality. It’s much more of what I’m steeped in. I don’t think it is first and foremost about me. It’s about the ideas and the agenda.
My mother was told she couldn’t go to medical school because she was a woman and a Jew. So she became a teacher in the New York City public school system.
I knew it was going to take a lot for me to leave my situation in Atlanta. We feel very good here. We love the city.
I left Mainz after 18 years and thought, ‘Next time, I will work with a little less of my heart.’ I said that because we all cried for a week. The city gave us a goodbye party, and it lasted a week.
Definitely just growing up in general influenced me; Detroit happened to be where I was. I feel like the city definitely has made an impact on my life and made me who I am. Detroit has an unmistakable soul – nobody can duplicate the soul we bring to the game. From Motown to J Dilla to Eminem to anything.
When I was 12, my friend and I tried to sneak onto a plane from my hometown of Cleveland to New York City! My dad encouraged us – he was a wild guy, big on jokes.
Planning a garden, park, building, or city shouldn’t be done in an office.
If you’re open to it, New Orleans will teach you about yourself, but if you want to hide from who you really are, the city will help you do that, too.

It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men live in a city without walls.
With a fresh start, I hope it’ll work out good. I know the whole Fox story and how he came over here and had a great year for them. I’m hoping that’s what it’ll be – fresh start, new faces, new team, new city. I’m looking forward to getting out there.
I grew up here in St. Albert, which is a city just north of Edmonton, and I went to Grade 10 here at Paul Kane High School. But then I went to junior in the WHL, Western Hockey League, at age 16. So I left and went to finish school at Norkam High School in Kamloops for grades 11 and 12.
Stupidity knows no bounds and certainly no city limits, but by and large, 99 percent of the people who come to Melvins shows seem to be relatively well behaved… I’m happy and relieved by this.
Be it a village or a city, education is very important, and it always comes into you.
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
While writing ‘City Boy,’ I relied mainly on my own memories. In particular, I was able to describe the effect of gay liberation on an individual life (mine) as events paralleled my own growing self-acceptance; in this case, the political truly was the personal.
In 20 or 30 years, you’ll be able to hold in your hand as much computing knowledge as exists now in the whole city, or even the whole world.
Because of my father, we are that Shining City on a Hill.
If you think about making a city that is much more porous, many accessible spaces, that is a political position, because you don’t fortify, you open it up so that many people can use it.
My first tattoo was on my right shoulder/tricep, it says ‘The City of H-Town.’
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
Portland has all the accoutrements of a big city, but the heart and soul of it is a small town, so that creates an intimacy in a large environment.
I’d like to thank my former club, Manchester City, for the support throughout my time in the Championship and during my transition to Huddersfield.
No matter where you put me, I don’t care if it is North Carolina, Florida, California, New York City; I’m going to be who I am.
Ronald Reagan believed in America as the shining city on the hill – Morning in America. But Donald Trump has a much different vision of American greatness, of nationalism – a much darker view, I think, of the world.
To me… San Francisco is an ideal city, intellectually stimulating and naturally beautiful. The oceans and forests are close enough to refresh the spirit; the architecture is always exciting.
San Francisco is a mad city – inhabited for the most part by perfectly insane people whose women are of a remarkable beauty.
I absolutely fell in love with Moscow. It’s one of those places where you can’t help but trip over history at every turn. It’s a city of enormous contradictions. Within a few yards of Lenin’s Tomb is some of the most expensive shopping in the world.
I loved the city of Chicago, and I love the Reinsdorfs. I’m forever grateful for them in taking a chance on me, allowing me to become the player that I am today. It’s still incredible to me that I got to hoop in a Bulls jersey.
For people who mourn for old Times Square – hey, there’s a ton of places in the city still like that! Get on the train and go visit them!
All in all Hyderabad is a beautiful city. I think I have fallen in love with it.
‘Girl in the City Chapter 2’ will still continue to revolve around Meera Sehgal and her life, her friends, and her passion. The stark difference in ‘Chapter 2’ will be that all the characters have now grown up in the series – in terms of maturity if not so much age.
I love ‘Sex and the City;’ I think I’ve seen every episode.
Israel’s capital will never again be a divided city, a city with a wall at its center, a city in which two flags fly. This city, will, in its entirety, absorb immigrants, welcome pilgrims and be the eternal capital of Israel forever.
Every city you go to has television and radio talk shows that are dying to give young comics a showcase. They all want to be able to say that so-and-so started here, got his first break on this show.
Go out one day and treat yourself. Go out and have the best sushi you can find, or go to the best barista in your city and have just a cup of cappuccino, and tell yourself that you deserve this. I think that is very empowering.
I run New York City!
Block by block, street by street, our city has the resources, the activism, and the ideas to meet these challenges if we act boldly and reshape what’s possible. After all, Boston was founded on a revolutionary promise: that things don’t have to be as they always have been.
I was always a clown. In the eighth grade I won a city speech contest by doing an Eddie Murphy routine. I’m no good at public speaking, but if I can assume a role and speak as that person, then I’m fine. When I had to give a book report, I always did it in character.
Nagpur is a lovely city, and I have many good friends out there.
As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means.
We need a real tent city in the heart of Moscow.
What’s special about Amsterdam is that the city is able to connect worlds that are not otherwise connected.
The city is like a great house, and the house in its turn a small city.
As we look forward to freedom, the shining city on the hill and the best days of America lying ahead, it is the men and women in uniform who protect, defend and make us proud to whom we should look and give thanks every night.
I’m happy living in the countryside. We are 30 minutes away from Milan, so I can drive in for dinner and drive out. It’s not a question of living in the country or in the city, it’s really a question of living in a tight, close-knit clan that makes the difference.
After college, I knew I wanted to work in comedy, so the first thing I did was go to where the comedy was. I moved from Charlottesville to Chicago, because that’s where The Second City and Improv Olympics are. You have to go wherever you need to go to study what interests you.
I’ll tell you what makes me feel worthwhile: organizing and solving other people’s problems. It makes me feel good to go to Mexico City and figure out theories on how you can reorganize and reduce crime. To me, it’s one of the more fulfilling ways to spend a day.
I was born in Mexico because my father was teaching at a school in Mexico City. I was born during the third year he was there. And when I was 16, I returned to Mexico to learn Spanish.
I been all around the world and I haven’t found a city that I’d rather be from or rather come back to than Los Angeles.
I’m in a little bit of a different situation, because working in the business that I do and living in the city that I live in, I haven’t had a problem with people who are gay. Since I was 10 I’ve been working alongside them, and some of my best friends are gay.
Why should a city be mandated to do something by the federal government or state government without the money to do it?
My dad was a city councilman and a county commissioner, so I grew up involved and engaged in the political process.
You could put all of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s angry sermons on to one loop. You could put that loop up on the big screen at Radio City Music Hall and let it play there 24 hours a day, seven days a week and Barack Obama will still emerge as the next president of the United States.
On Octover 16th, 2013, I moved to Liberia with my family to serve as a medical missionary at ELWA Hospital in the capital city of Morovia.
My memories of my childhood are wonderful memories. I feel that I was privileged because I grew up in a beautiful city. It is Catania, on the eastern coast of Sicily. It’s a place filled with sun, close to the beach.
For 10 years while I was at ESPN, I lived at the Residence Inn in Southington, Connecticut, near Bristol. I did that because my wife had a great job in New York City, and we had a place in New York City, at 54th and 8th. On Friday, I would come back, and then on Sunday evening I would go back to the Residence Inn.
You cannot deal with a city if it’s not socially integrated.
New York is a special place; it’s a city that I love.
Until we’re educating every kid in a fantastic way, until every inner city is cleaned up, there is no shortage of things to do.
My favorite city is anything close to home. Anytime I can sleep in my own bed, that’s a good one.
Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.
Antonio Sanchez is from Mexico City. I met him at a Pat Metheny concert. He did a solo, and I thought, ‘This is an octopus man!’
We will build the city from scratch. It will be drone-friendly and a center for the development of robotics. We want to create something different. Neom is a place for dreamers who want to create something new in the world, something extraordinary.
There’s this character, Theo Galavan, who becomes the ringleader for the revolution of villainy in the city of Gotham. He becomes this mentor figure for Jerome that really inspires him to go off the deep end, and it’s really fun.
I had a record called ‘Touchdown.’ It was really bubbling in my city, and I used to go to different clubs and perform.
Frank is such a great visual storyteller, that if you study his artwork you see that his Sin City books are already the best movies never seen on the big screen.
I love being on the road. I love that lifestyle, traveling city to city, rocking out and moving on to the next place.
When I became mayor of New York City, I had a $2.4 billion deficit. And everybody wanted me to raise taxes. I said, ‘If I raise taxes, I’ll drive people out of New York City, and then I’ll be raising taxes again.’ So what I did was I cut expenses by 15 percent.
Hong Kong might be a small place, but its people make it unique. The iconic images of skyscrapers in this bustling metropolis are famous around the world, but it is the people of Hong Kong, standing up for their city on the streets, who make it truly great.
The whole London football scene is now financially more powerful and ambitious than ever before. That reflects the city’s economic might and its multiculturalism. Now West Ham have a new , and Spurs and Chelsea will follow. And the London clubs have widened their areas of support.
Wow, bad news. Mr. Obama now hates Israel because the Israelis want to build 1,600 apartments in their own capital city, Jerusalem. Russia hates Israel, too. So do the Europeans. So does Ban Ki-moon, a Korean who is secretary-general of the UN.
Chicago is a beautiful city with a wonderful skyline.
I’ve enjoyed appearing in Atlantic City. East Coast audiences are a bit brighter than Las Vegas audiences. I think most entertainers will tell you the same thing. The East Coast audiences are more perceptive – especially when it comes to a performer with a theatrical background.
I believe Kendrick Lamar is not only an artist but an influencer of an entire generation. He represents Compton with great pride, and I am honored to present him with the Key to the City, which symbolizes our deep appreciation for his philanthropic work and commitment to our community.
When I was in Paris I was at a big club in a major city, but nobody really cared about each other. It didn’t have that family feeling, I didn’t see any team spirit.
When I heard Puerto Ricans in New York City, it sounded very strange. And the first time I heard someone from Spain, I thought they had a speech impediment!
Hollywood… a city I was to come back to time and again, in sickness and in health, in success and in failure, with anticipation and with dread.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges facing our cities or to the housing crisis, but the two issues need to be considered together. From an urban design and planning point of view, the well-connected open city is a powerful paradigm and an engine for integration and inclusivity.
The way that I learned to be confident was I would ride the back of the city bus and sing very low.
Atlanta is a city that welcomed me from the first day.
There is no right or wrong way of giving. People in Los Angeles have made major contributions in different ways to the city: Eli Broad to art. David Geffen to hospitals. I’m not judgmental.
To look at the cross-section of any plan of a big city is to look at something like the section of a fibrous tumor.
I am Eloise. I am six. I am a city child. I live at The Plaza.
One of the characteristics of North American culture is that you can always start again. You can always move forward, cross a border of a state or a city or a county, and move West, most of the time West. You leave behind guilt, past traditions, memories.
It’s really the city of Detroit that I owe the thanks to and all the people along the way, so many people that played a role in my success in giving me the dreams and aspirations to go to college and do the things that I did.
In Hong Kong there is agglomeration beyond my fondest imaginings. The Kowloon district claims a population density four times that of New York City.
I’m fed up with democracy. In a democracy, people vote for the mayors. I wanted to build a city where I will choose the citizens.
I can’t get enough of London! I love all the picnic benches, the old-school phone booths and parks in the middle of the city.
I am my city. Nobody from my city wants to hear about my city.
I was a regular on ‘Holby City,’ and I did daytime; that’s how I started off. Off in Hong Kong doing stuntman stuff, then coming back to England doing daytime soap operas.
I’ve always been drawn to city skylines.
Manchester is a city which has witnessed a great many stirring episodes, especially of a political character. Generally speaking, its citizens have been liberal in their sentiments, defenders of free speech and liberty of opinion.
I was attracted to the concept of Hollywood and the lifestyle here. But I’ve grown to mistrust it because it has changed. I didn’t bargain for digital access parking in some concrete structure. Real heaven for me was to drive somewhere and park right in front. Now the city is going vertical.
Nigeria has a lot of Man City fans, and they’re going to have more every time I go home.
Look at London or Paris: they’re both filthy. You don’t get that in Tokyo. The proud residents look after their city.
I’m going to do anything I can do – whether that’s being part of FIFA or creating some sort of movement that can actually impart real equality across all lines – in every country, every city, every sector all over the world, that’s what I’m going to do.
I started photographing amazing African wildlife for my own pleasure. It was like a much-needed antidote to my life in the city, which I was fast becoming allergic to.
There is a great deal of freshness and charm in ‘400 Blows.’ There is also a great deal of visual poetry in the way in which Truffaut’s camera looks at his beloved city.
Bengalis love to celebrate their language, their culture, their politics, their fierce attachment to a city that has been famously dying for more than a century. They resent with equal ferocity the reflex stereotyping that labels any civic dysfunction anywhere in the world ‘another Calcutta.’
Since by the ordination of God I both am called and am Emperor of the Romans, in nothing but name shall I appear to be ruler if the control of the Roman city be wrested from my hands.
We want to develop a technology that’s globally applicable, that’s not customized for a specific city or a specific country. The only way to do that is to be able to test every day in a diversity of environments.
I was born in Houston, Texas. I grew up in Houston, by Missouri City. It’s, like, a suburb in the area; it’s middle-class. But I used to stay with my grandma in the hood from ages one to six.
We moved to the city when I was 7, and the lack of exercise made me frustrated. I started fighting with my sisters, and my parents put me in judo as an outlet. I became very competitive and won a lot of medals.
In 1968, the sanitation workers of Memphis tried to form a union. The city resisted. The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. came to support them. That was where he lost his life.
London is great, but New York is the greatest city in the world.
If I was making the decision normally, with my heart, I’d never leave Celtic. My life was great. I loved the city. I loved the people. I loved the club. I had a wonderful life. If you think of all those things, you’d never move.
If you can play at a higher level, it’s great. But Melbourne City, the club’s growing, it’s got everything now with the facilities and the professionalism here is first class so it’s not a bad place to be at all.
The city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo.
It was when my children were 5, 3 and 10 months old that I just felt the desperate need to get to know God through the pages of my Bible. And as a result, I started a Bible class in my city for the primary purpose of being in it.
My mother and father raised their eyebrows at first when I said I wanted to be an actor because I was in this industrial city. My dad had done a bit of boxing on the side, but he was a welder first and foremost. I was 17, and I said, ‘I want to be an actor.’ They worried it was a waste of time.
Given the way some fought for the status quo when I authored the new Ethics Code and created the city’s first Ethics Commission, we are going to need your strong support to get an even tougher Ethics Code passed this year.
There is hardly a place in New York that you can’t walk a block and a half and get a cup of coffee. Believe me, I’ve been all over the world. There’s no place like that but New York City.
The lanes and streets of the city being set out, the choice of sites for the convenience and use of the state remains to be decided on; for sacred edifices, for the forum, and for other public buildings.
A graphic representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.
Usually, I head for another performance or back to Mumbai right after my performance. But whenever I come to Delhi, I make it a point to stay back in the city for at least a day so that I can unwind.
In city planning, there is no limit to be fixed.
A Mediterranean city is really my culture.
Every man needs a good, solid watch. My favorite watch is the Presidential Rolex. I own many watches, but this one is usually the one on my wrist. I buy mine in the Diamond District in New York City. Classic.
I’ve been in many of them and to some extent I would have to say this; if you’ve seen one city slum you’ve seen them all.
We have food deserts in our cities. We know that the distance you live from a supplier of fresh produce is one of the best predictors of your health. And in the inner city, people don’t have grocery stores. So we have to figure out a way of getting supermarkets and farmers markets into the inner cities.
Money plays an important role in football, but it is not the dominating factor. When Chelsea play a Carling Cup game in a small city, and it could result in a draw – the excitement, the spirit, the atmosphere – that’s the real beauty of football in England.
The origins of my career as a peace mediator can be found from my childhood years. I was born in the city of Viipuri, then still part of Finland. We lost Viipuri when the Soviet Union attacked my country. Along with 400,000 fellow Karelians, I became an eternally displaced person in the rest of Finland.
New York is, like, my dream city.
I placed my new novel, ‘The Book of Lost Fragrances’, in Paris, knowing it would be a challenge. But the book belonged in the city that is one of the greatest perfume capitals of the world and has been since for more than three centuries.
In the end, it was a no-brainer to join West Ham, but I still needed to take five minutes to myself because it’s a big moment for anyone to move club, especially off the pitch when it involves moving to a big city. You’ve got to take every single factor into consideration because it’s a big decision in your life.
But this is the great danger America faces. That we will cease to be one nation and become instead a collection of interest groups: city against suburb, region against region, individual against individual. Each seeking to satisfy private wants.
I enjoyed giving back to the city I was born and raised in.
It’s my mission to get the New Zealand accent into a Hollywood show. I’m proud of the way we talk, and I’m here to represent it. Kiwis are everywhere: they’re in every city of the world. I’ve checked. We have a voice… it’s a bit of a funny one at times, but it’s one that I want to promote.
It’s clear that the NYPD has prioritized creating a force as diverse as the vibrant city it protects.
I miss New York terribly. There is no place like the city. I miss people-watching. I miss the nightlife. I miss the food. There are so many options in New York City.
There’s an uncanniness to living in Los Angeles, from the way you move through the city to the moments of feeling familiarity or deja vu, like you’ve been somewhere or you know something when you really don’t.
As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means.
The city of Detroit is always home, and I’m very proud of where I’m from.
The team I support is Manchester City. And that’s because a friend of mine, who I visited when I was in England, Alexander Zinchenko, plays for them.
Toronto is a special city, and the environment is perfect for the arts; free and alive. I’m a New Yorker, and Toronto reminds me of a much cleaner New York, so it’s like coming home after your mom just cleaned your room for you; for me that’s a lovely environment.
Venice is the perfect place for a phase of art to die. No other city on earth embraces entropy quite like this magical floating mall.
On the banks of the Nile, the Rosetta branch, I lived an enjoyable childhood in the City of Disuq, which is the home of the famous mosque, Sidi Ibrahim.
New York City is a great monument to the power of money and greed… a race for rent.
Chicago is an October sort of city even in spring.
I love Paris for the million reasons that everybody loves the city. It’s an incredibly romantic and beautiful place.
I said to myself, ‘What show could I be on that makes sense?’ And with ‘Parks and Rec’ being in Pawnee, like a fictitious city in Indiana, I said ‘that really makes sense.’
The permanent power brokers of this city are the columnists.
The story of Detroit’s bankruptcy was simple enough: Allow capitalism to grow the city, campaign against income inequality, tax the job creators until they flee, increase government spending in order to boost employment, promise generous pension plans to keep people voting for failure. Rinse, wash and repeat.
I’m very grateful to Manchester City. They are incredible.
I think, a lot of times in a big city, you’re working even when you’re not.
Sometimes in Portland I’m like, ‘Who is funding this city?’ It’s doing great – there’s all these new shops; there’s a synthesizer store. Where is this coming from?
In ‘Where the Air is Clear’, Carlos Fuentes composed a polyphonic portrait of Mexico City amid the growth and modernization brought on by the economic boom of the 1950s. The novel can be read as a jazz interpretation – free and in a Mexican key – of John Dos Passos’ ‘Manhattan Transfer’.
It is true that the king has made a truce with the duke of Burgundy for fifteen days and that the duke is to turn over the city of Paris at the end of fifteen days. Yet you should not marvel if I do not enter that city so quickly.
I like sundresses with cowboy boots, little shorts with big wedge heels and a big piece of turquoise. I also love classic, Old Hollywood romantic styles. I’m ‘country girl meets city girl’ circa 1930.
I had a dream of music and art and the big city in which I would get lost, where no one would know me and I wouldn’t know anyone, where I would work at some ordinary job, and if one day I got up in the morning and decided I wasn’t going to go to work anymore, no one would ask questions.
I have always kept in mind the advice of Ronaldinho, and he spoke wonders of Barcelona and the city, which he told me is marvellous.
I need both to feel good: the energy of the city and the quietness of the country.
My dad didn’t graduate high school. My mom is a high school graduate. My mom is a factory worker. My dad owned a bar in the inner city.
I’d read about Los Angeles and this fact stuck in my mind: that the city gained 1,000 new people every day. In 1956! A thousand people every day! I felt: ‘I want to be part of that.’
The life of Liverpool is commerce; it is a city of warehouses and shops.
Amsterdam is a breeding ground for new creative pursuits in many areas fueled by a tolerance and openness to ideas unlike any world city I’ve been to. There is something for everyone here, especially when you dare to go off the beaten path.
Here in the big city people spend their time thinking about work and about money; they don’t give some value to friendships and it can be depressing.
My art is an attempt to reach beyond the surface appearance. I want to see growth in wood, time in stone, nature in a city, and I do not mean its parks but a deeper understanding that a city is nature too-the ground upon which it is built, the stone with which it is made.
A city becomes a world when one loves one of its inhabitants.
From a planning perspective, I thought Compton was phenomenal. It has a huge potential to be a great city, and I always bet on the underdog.
That’s the great thing about the ‘Sin City’ movies. Each little slot is incredibly meaningful, and each character has their own moment.
You cannot say no to a club like Man City. I did not think twice.
At the end of my life, I have achieved belated fame and recognition in the city of my birth.
Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and, in my opinion, the best place to visit. It is an amazing hub of history. It’s called the Pink City because all the architecture has a hint of pink in the stones used. It’s an amazing stop for all kinds of food but also for history and shopping. It has a little bit of everything.
Living in N.Y.C. has truly awakened me to the New York elite and their penchant for the city’s self-described brilliant public transit system. I think it sucks… just like public transit always does.
Chicago is the greatest of all baseball cities. I make no exception, although I have been treated well wherever I have been. It is the greatest city because the fans will stick to a loser season after season. I have had my share of defeats, so I should know.
I was traveling a lot as a young actor, and while in a new city, I’d want to see the place, so I would just put on my trainers and go for a jog. And the more I did that, the more I found I was traveling longer and longer distances. I just fell into it.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.
San Francisco is a city of twenty-something millionaire white kids named Doug.
Bonuses balance my budget in New York City. The bigger the bonuses on Wall Street, the more money I had to spend on poor people. The New York City budget is determined greatly by the bonuses given on Wall Street.
Vancouver’s a very child friendly city, there’s… no doubt about that.
London changes because of money. It’s real estate. If they can build some offices or expensive apartments they will, it’s money that changes everything in a city.
‘La La Land’ is about the city I live in. It’s about the music that I grew up playing; it’s about movies that I grew up watching. Even the big spectacle of the movie feels private to me in that way.
I believe that looking at the sunset or the city’s landscape helps me think.
I was a member of the Haifa City Council when I was 23 years old, which made me the youngest city councilman in Israel.
Rio’s a beautiful city, a vibrant place, special place.
I don’t know if a lot of players can actually say they played in the All-Star Game in their actual city, their team’s city.
The church we grew up playing at was not one of those churches known for its music, but it was just this all-around energy that would be happening because, at the same time we’d be playing in church, we’d be playing in the city jazz band under Reggie Edwards.
Growing up in a Jewish matriarchal world inside the patriarchal paradise of Salt Lake City, Utah, gave me increased perspective on gender issues, as it also did my gay brother and my lesbian sister. Our younger sister is the perfect Jewish-American wife and mother, and is fiercely proud of that fact.
I don’t even know anyone who hasn’t watched ‘Sex and the City.’ If you didn’t, we can’t be friends.
I think it’s my nature to – every time I hear about an award or a nomination, it makes me realize how much I must’ve been losing before, because I was not aware that every major city had these critics’ awards.
I’ve been quite fascinated by the relative insignificance of human existence, the shortness of life. We might as well be a letter in a word in a sentence on a page in a book in a library in a city in one country in this enormous universe! And that kind of fear and insignificance has kept me awake at night.
Turin is a city which entices a writer towards vigor, linearity, style. It encourages logic, and through logic it opens the way towards madness.
I came out of the old Second City in Chicago. Chicago actors are more hard-nosed. They’re tough on themselves and their fellow actors. They’re self-demanding.
I grew up in an inner city neighborhood called the Benson Hurst section of Brooklyn, which was a very embracing, warm, family-type neighborhood.
I am a total beach person, and that’s why I just love coming to Vizag. The city also reminds me of the peaceful defence colonies of my childhood.
I have a place in Chicago and I get there as much as I can… The city is so unbelievably beautiful. It’s one of the greatest cities on the planet. My heart beats differently when I’m in Chicago. It slows down and I feel more at ease.
Well, first of all, I grew up in New York City, going to first a public school, then a private school, and when I got to the private school in Manhattan, I learned of what we called ‘The Promised Land,’ which are the Hamptons. I’ve always had an affinity for the Hamptons.
‘Hanna’ has grown up in mother nature’s beautiful wilderness and that’s what she knows. So for someone like me who has always had a life in the city, it was a chance to look beyond social conventions.
The city needs a car like a fish needs a bicycle.
Ukrainian business must really embrace global competition. We need to understand that competition for resources and clients is not with competitors from across the street or from another city, but with millions of businesses around the world.
‘Detroit 1-8-7’ – the numbers are police slang for murder – is filmed in that blue-collar Michigan city, providing a flavor of authenticity. Detroit offers a unique visual landscape that tells the story of the city and what it’s been through.
The great city can teach something that no university by itself can altogether impart: a vivid sense of the largeness of human brotherhood, a vivid sense of man’s increasing obligation to man; a vivid sense of our absolute dependence on one another.
In city hall and in local government, you have to get things done without drama.
This is the city of dreamers and time and again it’s the place where the greatest dream of all, the American dream, has been tested and has triumphed.
City life is stressful. Everybody is running around like crazy, stuck in traffic jams trying to make meetings, trying to make ends meet, trying to meet deadlines, trying to get kids to and from activities. There aren’t enough hours in the day for all this business.
I urge you to read the Occupy Manifesto, written by the New York City General Assembly. It is unavoidably clear. This is not directionless action. If it were, the media would have moved on.
There are people walking around the streets of Kansas City who are unemployed, while one of our largest employers is not only sending jobs aboard, but then turning around and making a statement about preserving jobs.
London is a city of ghosts; you feel them here. Not just of people, but eras. The ghost of empire, or the blitz, the plague, the smoky ghost of the Great Fire that gave us Christopher Wren’s churches and ushered in the Georgian city.
If there was ever a true emotion of a Chicago Bull, Derrick Rose embodies it. Because he is Chicago. That kid will do anything for the city of Chicago.
Nature is a petrified magic city.
New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You’re in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.
With Pep Guardiola, City are growing more and more.
The Athenians are right to accept advice from anyone, since it is incumbent on everyone to share in that sort of excellence, or else there can be no city at all.
In ‘Open City,’ there is a passage that any reader of Joyce will immediately recognise as a very close, formal analogue of one the stories in ‘Dubliners.’ That is because a novel is also a literary conversation.
The one thing that you simply have to remember all the time that you are there, is that Hollywood is an oriental city. As long as you do that you might survive. If you try to equate it with anything else you’ll perish.
Nice is a very beautiful city, but I came only for the sport.
I think that I’ve tried many times to get Cuba in my writings, especially Havana, which was once a great and fascinating city.
I think being born in Panama was a blessing because Panama is a port city. It’s a really – the mentality is that – I remember that of admitting things in. You know, ports, ideas come in and out all the time.
I won the city scoring championship as a senior.
I was taken out of school by my dad when I was 11 and lived in Mexico City, then later in Paris. I went with him to excavate in Bolivia and Peru. I never finished high school. I was a straight F student anyway. My father admitted to me later that he’d thought I would come to no good.
When I went to City of Bath College, I studied the music business.
I love New York City. Everyone is busy with their own lives – and no one is interested in some Hollywood celebrity walking past in downtown Manhattan.

I’ve taken so many kids out of Pittsburgh and onto the great white way in New York City right into a Broadway show.

To one extent, if you’ve seen one city slum, you’ve seen them all.
You want to be drafted high, but to be drafted high into an organization like the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s like a dream to me.
Rome was a poem pressed into service as a city.
I’m in love with cities. I find them amazing, the quiet co-ordination of thousands of people, going about what we’re trying to do, and that organism of the city nurturing human aspiration, and the actual city fabric itself being a special thing rather than just infrastructure.
My business partner Robert De Niro knows a lot about hotels; he opened the Greenwich Hotel in New York City.
Let every man, every corporation, and especially let every village, town, and city, every county and State, get out of debt and keep out of debt. It is the debtor that is ruined by hard times.
I think if we’re going to be serious as a city, as a country, about addressing climate change, addressing inequality and racial disparities, we have to start taking action at the scale that matches the urgency of the problems.
Often an entire city has suffered because of an evil man.
Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.
Your brain is built of cells called neurons and glia – hundreds of billions of them. Each one of these cells is as complicated as a city.
Westminster is a piece of this city’s energy, something the contemporary world has forgotten.
The attacks on the World Trade Center and the current economic recession, which is particularly powerful in New York City, have put a number of building plans on hold for the time being.
I love coming to Detroit. First getting to be buddies with Kid Rock in the beginning, and him being really great to us, showing us love, the love of the city. I feel like it’s our city now, too.
Sydney is the most amazing city. The food and the beautiful beaches are fantastic, and all that surf and sunshine make you feel unbelievably relaxed.
After the 9/11 apocalypse happened in New York City, people, particularly New Yorkers, who breathed in the ash, or saw the results of that, have a tendency to keep seeing echoes and having flashbacks to it.
A railway station is something that can generate a city.
You can learn a lot when you play in a little town in Holland or Western Australia, and you learn different things than you would learn playing a big city.
Washington is a city of important men and the women they married before they grew up.
I love New York. It’s hard to explain, but it’s the energy of the city. It’s not like L.A. where everything is spread out.
Rome is my most favorite city, so I really enjoy to stay here and the whole tournament.
I would like to use architecture to create bonds between people who live in cities, and even use it to recover the communities that used to exist in every single city.
If anything, the children of Paris should be giving me even more money for having the privilege of being in the same city as my incredible quality. And so should David Beckham. Call it a Zlaritable donation.
Both Everton and City have fantastic sets of fans who really get behind the players.
We danced on the lip of the volcano, so to speak. We were young, too. And New York was still a big, open city where anything could happen and anyone could be star. Rents were cheap, creativity was encouraged, and bottle service was still 20 years away. That was the era the Club Kids came into.
As a society, we devalued farming as an occupation and encouraged the best students to leave the farm for ‘better’ jobs in the city. We emptied America’s rural counties in order to supply workers to urban factories.
The city is as large as Seville or Cordova; its streets, I speak of the principal ones, are very wide and straight; some of these, and all the inferior ones, are half land and half water, and are navigated by canoes.
