My friend Kevin Fitzpatrick, the founder of the Dorothy Parker Society and a true New Yorker, sent me his regards yesterday. I thought you all might enjoy them too…
Here is something for you, from my book "Quotable New York" (I highly recommend it, the one edited by William Cole)
"There are two million interesting people in New York and only seventy-eight in Los Angeles" — Neil Simon
The number will be 80 next week.
Thanks Kevin, although you got the number wrong. Jessica makes 79. I make 79.5 … if one is feeling generous.
