Quote of the Day (Jay McInerney, on How New York Views the Past and the Future)

“New York has never been oriented toward the past…The past is if you can remember what you ate yesterday or who you slept with. And the future is, ‘Where are we going tonight?’”—Novelist Jay McInerney (Bright Lights, Big City) quoted in Brenda Cronin, “He’ll Still Take Manhattan,” The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 5, 2016
