The Texture of a City

The texture of a city. Is it calm and smooth, rough and pocketed, woven with greys or dotted with neons? A bit gritty (yet not seeming quite as gritty since my move to LA), bright petals in flower boxes street-side and grey sky cover in spring, chain-link fences, abundant fabric patterns in every corner boutique, doors painted in layers of the year’s Pantone choice, noise from every angle, and art in every direction. New York.

“It is an ugly city, a dirty city. Its climate is a scandal. Its politics are used to frighten children. Its traffic is madness. Its competition is murderous. But there is one thing about itonce you have lived in New York and it has become your home, no other place is good enough.”
-John Steinbeck
