“A New Yorker is someone who longs for New York”

The blog Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York, written by the pseudonymous author Jeremiah Moss, posted on June 19, 2008:

“In the end, the NYPL host quoted Milan Kundera as saying, ‘A European is someone who longs for Europe.’ To which I will add the implied: A New Yorker is someone who longs for New York.”

“A New Yorker is someone who longs for New York” was made a feature quote on the blog. The quote has also been used on other blogs and on Twitter.
