3 Day Quote Challenge, Day 1

This is the first day of the 3 Day 3 Quote Challenge and InCahootsWithMuddyBoots challenged me, so I had to accept this tag. Since this is a New York centric blog, the quotes will be all about my city.The rules for the challenge are:

  • Post on three consecutive days
  • Post one to three quotes on each day
  • Challenge three different bloggers on each day


I am nominating these three bloggers:

Here are my quotes for today:

“The true New Yorker secretly believes that people living anywhere else have to be, in some sense, kidding.”

“I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance.”
Nora Ephron, Heartburn

“If London is a watercolor, New York is an oil painting.”

    Now there is the Empire State Building! I did a whole post that was pivotal to the word state with a picture of the “Empire State” until I realised it was a picture of the Chrysler building! I am such a tourist!

      That’s hilarious but a lot of people mistake the two in pictures. It’s not until I’m standing near both of them you notice the difference. If you stand on the corner 42nd and 5th avenue you can see them both. Then you’ll notice the architectural difference. It’s ok Leanne!

        It was funny, I was having fun with the series of photos and was just about to hit publish when I realised my mistake! Whew, would have looked a little more silly if I had to be corrected!

          Whew is right!

        They are both such Iconic buildings!

          Yes they are, I haven’t done the tourist thing and gone to the top. Not sure if my fear of heights would let me.

      You’re welcome. I loved doing it. One day left, it’s just a matter of me scheduling it properly, which is hard for me.

What do you think? I would like to know.
