magazine has produced that article about New York noobs and why they come here
, which we saw them working on earlier
, and about all you need to know about it is in this quote: "Many offered some variation on 'I came here to live out my dream.'" If you can stomach more, a former nanny says she's not sure how she'll pay her phone bill but "I am confident this city will continue to open up for me in ways that I cannot even imagine." With that, New York
tires of the little people and moves on to celebrities, like Rufus Wainwright
, who "came to New York and worked three jobs" even though he's the son of successful recording artists -- maybe it was a hazing ceremony of some kind -- and had lots of heroin and sex. That's more interesting than some nanny's desperately optimistic boilerplate! Albert Hammond Jr.
, also a son of success, recalls "Getting a job at Kim's Video was harder than joining a band" and "It was only a month after living here that I met Julian Casablancas. His father had a modeling agency called Elite." Lorne Michaels
talks about his first trip to Brooks Brothers. Now the article has revived our
old dream of running amok with a machine gun. See, New York, like New York
, is a constant source of inspiration.
