The Last Of The Native New Yorkers

"People who come to New York think of it so differently. They talk about the tall buildings and how big and new everything is. But to me New York is haimish. Many, many small things very used. What do you think New York is?"

I think of it as the place I am intimately me in. But I feel eroded now...

"By the changes? Yes. Every once in a while I look up and say 'oh shit. Don't do this to my city.'"

Carola Dibbell writes like Kerouac and all those other motherfuckers wished they wrote. She's the real deal. She'll be reading on March 9th at Housing Works on Crosby Street as part of the Fence Magazine night.
