In their heyday, the Pet Shop Boys were the Interpol of the Eighties, dressing up to sing really weird pop songs about lust and loneliness in the big city. They’re low-pro now, not retro-worshipped in the manner of Depeche Mode, New Order, or The Cure, but you can hear the reason why – these guys are too sad.
P Street in D.C. is one of the worst areas in the city. Some of the things I saw, the things I experienced, the things we came through, really gave me a whole new perspective on life.
Nature is impersonal, awe-inspiring, elegant, eternal. It’s geometrically perfect. It’s tiny and gigantic.

Definitely just growing up in general influenced me; Detroit happened to be where I was. I feel like the city definitely has made an impact on my life and made me who I am. Detroit has an unmistakable soul – nobody can duplicate the soul we bring to the game. From Motown to J Dilla to Eminem to anything.
Even in this globalised world, London is still the standard for our times. The city has embraced the world’s diversity and represents the finest in human achievements.

I come to Fashion Week events in New York City twice a year.

Let every man, every corporation, and especially let every village, town, and city, every county and State, get out of debt and keep out of debt. It is the debtor that is ruined by hard times.

We danced on the lip of the volcano, so to speak. We were young, too. And New York was still a big, open city where anything could happen and anyone could be star. Rents were cheap, creativity was encouraged, and bottle service was still 20 years away. That was the era the Club Kids came into.
I enjoy coming to Ahmedabad. The city is really awesome and people here are warm and hospitable.
My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. I knew I belonged here.

I remember my grandmother taking me and my sisters to the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. We would watch the diving bell and see the diving horse jump into the pool. We would take the bus there, and I just smile thinking about all of us running around the pier on those days.

The great city can teach something that no university by itself can altogether impart: a vivid sense of the largeness of human brotherhood, a vivid sense of man’s increasing obligation to man; a vivid sense of our absolute dependence on one another.
We have to be ready to confront the risks that the terrorists and others present to our city and those risks are unique in any nation’s capital.
In the end, it was a no-brainer to join West Ham, but I still needed to take five minutes to myself because it’s a big moment for anyone to move club, especially off the pitch when it involves moving to a big city. You’ve got to take every single factor into consideration because it’s a big decision in your life.
I saw myself as a trailblazer in the 1980s as a female lawyer in the City. It was exciting, as women were outnumbered by men five to one. But while I had this sense of trailblazing, in reality, I wasn’t pushing boundaries; it was just a personal myth I’d created, as I was doing a job I wasn’t enjoying.
Bain also asked Kansas City for a $3 million tax break. The Bain executives were taking home $36 million in borrowed funds and were asking Kansas City to forfeit $3 million in public money for police officers, roads and schools? More free stuff!
Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.
I only box. It’s the only thing that keeps me sane. I can’t just go to the gym and run. I’d rather die. I played volleyball and rode horses my entire life, so just, like, moving to a city and having to go the gym was just, like, so weird for me.
I grew up in New York City, and I’ve got wonderful memories of the Fourth of July fireworks.
Because of my father, we are that Shining City on a Hill.

This City is what it is because our citizens are what they are.
When I went to City of Bath College, I studied the music business.
A city can only be reconstructed in the form of urban quarters. A large or a small city can only be reorganized as a large or a small number of urban quarters; as a federation of autonomous quarters. Each quarter must have its own center, periphery and limit. Each quarter must be a city within a city.
A few years ago, the city council of Monza, Italy, barred pet owners from keeping goldfish in curved bowls… saying that it is cruel to keep a fish in a bowl with curved sides because, gazing out, the fish would have a distorted view of reality. But how do we know we have the true, undistorted picture of reality?
We lived in the bowels of New York City. It was a struggle just to survive. This nice suburban kid hadn’t had to do much of that before.
Richard Pryor introduced me to the world of the inner city, and the urban world, and did it hysterically. My favorite comedian, even though we work 180 degrees differently, but funny is funny is funny.
What could be better than walking down any street in any city and knowing you’re the heavyweight champion of the world?
I’m a bit of a Scotophile. I have a house on the Black Isle, so I’m in Scotland quite a lot and think Edinburgh is just the most beautiful city.
I love Amsterdam. The city is vibrant and alive. It’s fresh and so open. It’s definitely one of my favorite places.
Even on tour, where I perform songs from ‘City Of Black And White,’ I still do songs from ‘Nothing Left To Lose.’ I never turned my back on that material. On some albums, you change – that’s all. The trick is to follow your heart and do what feels right.
I loved the High Line when it was just mine, when I was the only person up there, and I had a private park in New York City. I had to make an appointment to see it… I’d walk around. I was all alone.
L.A., it’s nice, but I think of sunshine and people on rollerblades eating sushi. New York, I think of nighttime, I think of Times Square and Broadway and nightlife and the city that never sleeps.
I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron’s invitation to collaborate on the design, and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end, I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.
I feel absolutely no threat or fear in Mexico City.
In ‘Open City,’ there is a passage that any reader of Joyce will immediately recognise as a very close, formal analogue of one the stories in ‘Dubliners.’ That is because a novel is also a literary conversation.
What I like about Oxford is how small it is; it’s really more of a big town than a city.
‘Sex and The City’ had very strong gag orders as to what we could say and not say.
Once you go outside of Atlanta, there are still a lot of Klan rallies and whatnot. There are a lot of conflicting elements that are trying to solve itself in that city.
I believe Kendrick Lamar is not only an artist but an influencer of an entire generation. He represents Compton with great pride, and I am honored to present him with the Key to the City, which symbolizes our deep appreciation for his philanthropic work and commitment to our community.
I had thought that Tokyo would be like New York City, but it wasn’t. I’d imagined that they’d be similar in their bustle and noise level, but, in fact, Tokyo is a very calm metropolis. The bright lights and hectic night-life images so often found in advertisements and Western media do not reflect every day Japan.
That’s a little homage in a way to that and also to create that sort of creepy atmosphere that Hitchcock did. Vertigo was one of his great movies that was shot right here in The City and it’s about a woman and the psychological twists and so forth.
Westminster is a piece of this city’s energy, something the contemporary world has forgotten.
Having Black hair is unique in that Black women change up styles a lot. You can walk down one street block in New York City and see 10 different hairstyles that Black women are wearing: straight curls, short cuts, braids – we really run the gamut.
The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity.

Mumbai may not be my city. But it is my kind of city.
Agriculture is not crop production as popular belief holds – it’s the production of food and fiber from the world’s land and waters. Without agriculture it is not possible to have a city, stock market, banks, university, church or army. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy.
Being in New York is an almost overwhelming experience. While Washington, D.C., is my favorite American city, I regard New York City as the most amazing city in the world. No other comes close. It is an incredible, inexhaustible engine.
I’m in a little bit of a different situation, because working in the business that I do and living in the city that I live in, I haven’t had a problem with people who are gay. Since I was 10 I’ve been working alongside them, and some of my best friends are gay.
I’ll tell you what makes me feel worthwhile: organizing and solving other people’s problems. It makes me feel good to go to Mexico City and figure out theories on how you can reorganize and reduce crime. To me, it’s one of the more fulfilling ways to spend a day.
I was inspired to see leaders from Paris, New York City, San Francisco and Vancouver, B.C. rolling up their sleeves to create clean and safe transportation systems; make homes and buildings efficient, comfortable and affordable; and ensure more of our energy comes from clean sources like wind and solar.
I’m from New York. My grandparents were settlers of Long Island City. When they came here, there was no bridge, and they had to hire a boat across the river. They had a farm, and my grandmother had to go once a week to Manhattan to buy provisions – very primitive.
I was born in the shadow of World War II, on December 18, 1939, on the South Shore of Long Island, a product of the early -wentieth-century emigration of Eastern European Jewry to New York City and its environs.
Glasgow is a great city.
I don’t think any other holiday embraces the food of the Midwest quite like Thanksgiving. There’s roasted meat and mashed potatoes. But being here is also about heritage. Cleveland is really a giant melting pot – not only is my family a melting pot, but so is the city.
You want to be drafted high, but to be drafted high into an organization like the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s like a dream to me.
Chicago is not the most corrupt American city. It’s the most theatrically corrupt.
My favourite plant is the foxglove. I think they are a perfect balance between being a garden plant and a wild plant, as at home in woodland as they are in a city.
I have been robbed of three million dollars all told. Everyone today is playing my stuff and I don’t even get credit. Kansas City style, Chicago style, New Orleans style hell, they’re all Jelly Roll style.
I think Newark has been in the crosshairs in every generation of the fight to achieve America. And I think Newark is a city that’s at that crossroads still.
You know my girls are so funny. You’re out in the country and there are critters everywhere and they get a little like, ‘Oh my God! Oh no, bugs!’ and I had to say, ‘Honey this is fine. This is their world and it’s all part of being in the country.’ I realized, ‘Oh my God, my girls are really city girls.’
I’ve been in many of them and to some extent I would have to say this; if you’ve seen one city slum you’ve seen them all.
Istanbul is an unbelievable city, just really beautiful and the people are really, really nice.
I’m working on a film called ‘Bonnie.’ Bonnie means water. It’s in English, and it’s dealing with a future world in a megacity – which is what the U.N. says we’re going to be – but in this megacity, a city that runs out of water.
I run New York City!
Nature is a petrified magic city.
Paris is a place where, for me, just walking down a street that I’ve never been down before is like going to a movie or something. Just wandering the city is entertainment.
‘La La Land’ is about the city I live in. It’s about the music that I grew up playing; it’s about movies that I grew up watching. Even the big spectacle of the movie feels private to me in that way.
I don’t like the idea that one hotel could be better than another. In any city, I try to find a hotel that has the identity of that place – Claridge’s in London, the Danieli or Cipriani in Venice. In New York, I stay at the Mercer Hotel; it is so much in the character of SoHo.
When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was to escape what I thought was the country and get to a city. Probably film and television had influenced me so much, I really thought the key to happiness was living a very artificial life in a penthouse in New York with martini glasses.
Hong Kong is different to mainland China. We protect our freedoms. We ask for free elections to elect the leader of our city.
Jaipur has definitely turned into a very beautiful city.
It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.
I can’t read music. Instead, I’d do stuff inside the piano, do harmonics and all kinds of crazy things. They used to put me in these annual piano contests down at Long Beach City College, and two years in a row, I won first prize – out of like 5,000 kids!
I like the city. I like the concrete. I like big business. I like being a CEO of my own company and having a lot of responsibilities. At the same time, when I can go off with a backpack or off on a surfboard or even off on a run somewhere in the woods – that’s where I’m really happy.
New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You’re in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.
I was born in New York City, but I was raised in New Jersey, part of the great Jewish emigration of 1963.
’25th Hour,’ like a lot of my films, takes place in New York City. I’ve been very fortunate to make films in the city that I live. I mean, it’s great going home at night instead of being on location.
London changes because of money. It’s real estate. If they can build some offices or expensive apartments they will, it’s money that changes everything in a city.
Atlanta is a city that welcomed me from the first day.
Go out one day and treat yourself. Go out and have the best sushi you can find, or go to the best barista in your city and have just a cup of cappuccino, and tell yourself that you deserve this. I think that is very empowering.
Pittsburgh is a very hard city, especially if you’re black.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges facing our cities or to the housing crisis, but the two issues need to be considered together. From an urban design and planning point of view, the well-connected open city is a powerful paradigm and an engine for integration and inclusivity.
New York is, like, my dream city.
New York City has finally hired women to pick up the garbage, which makes sense to me, since, as I’ve discovered, a good bit of being a woman consists of picking up garbage.
Aesthetically, London is just beautiful; it’s a gorgeous city. The architecture, monuments, the parks, the small streets – it’s an incredible place to be.
Remember Circuit City? Bear Stearns? Lehman Brothers? Sports Authority? Once, all were billion-dollar companies – then gone in a moment. The fatal problem might be fraud or corruption, but more often, it’s simply that management didn’t see ‘over the other side of the hill.’
Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and, in my opinion, the best place to visit. It is an amazing hub of history. It’s called the Pink City because all the architecture has a hint of pink in the stones used. It’s an amazing stop for all kinds of food but also for history and shopping. It has a little bit of everything.
During my childhood, Washington was a segregated city, and I lived in the midst of a poor black neighborhood. Life on the streets was often perilous. Indoor reading was my refuge, and twice a week, I made the hazardous bicycle trek to the central library at Seventh and K streets to stock up on supplies.
I grew up in a very spiritual home in a Liberty City neighborhood of Miami, FL. I was raised in the church, and my mother was a very inspirational person in my life.

Manchester is obviously is a huge footballing city with Manchester City and Manchester United there – and I really like this accent because my agent is also from Manchester and my girlfriend‘s family is from Manchester.

I said to myself, ‘What show could I be on that makes sense?’ And with ‘Parks and Rec’ being in Pawnee, like a fictitious city in Indiana, I said ‘that really makes sense.’
There is no city in America that has reduced crime as much as we have in the last three years. This is not the product of accident. This is the product of design.
If you can play at a higher level, it’s great. But Melbourne City, the club’s growing, it’s got everything now with the facilities and the professionalism here is first class so it’s not a bad place to be at all.
The lanes and streets of the city being set out, the choice of sites for the convenience and use of the state remains to be decided on; for sacred edifices, for the forum, and for other public buildings.
I’m a New Yorker. I was there during 9/11 and I saw how, not only New York City stopped for a moment, we all took an inhale and exhale at the same time – the world united at that time, and it changed my life.
I’ve probably saved more black lives as mayor of New York City than any mayor in New York City with the possible exception of Mike Bloomberg, who was there for 12 years.
In Barcelona, things seem so different. For example, I know that it’s traditionally the least Spanish city, but you’d never know they had a monarchy, coming here as a tourist – as opposed to the U.K., where the Queen is probably the best-known animal, vegetable and/or mineral going when it comes to overseas visitors.
The great city is that which has the greatest man or woman: if it be a few ragged huts, it is still the greatest city in the whole world.
I love coming to Detroit. First getting to be buddies with Kid Rock in the beginning, and him being really great to us, showing us love, the love of the city. I feel like it’s our city now, too.
You probably don’t need more weapons than what’s required to destroy every city on earth. There’s only 2,300 cities. So, the United States, by that criteria, only needs 2,300 nuclear weapons – well, we’ve got more than 25,000!
They divided the city into three electoral wards, and in one ward there was 70 percent of the people, the Catholic population, and they elected eight representatives to the city council.
Had my grandparents not emigrated when they did, I might have been born Jewish in Eastern Europe during World War II, or I might not have been born at all. Instead, I was born in 1942 in New York City.
If Paris is a city of lights, Sydney is the city of fireworks.
Rome is my most favorite city, so I really enjoy to stay here and the whole tournament.
I say to people that Los Angeles is a city of America’s hope and its promise. It’s a city where we come from every corner of the Earth here to make the American dream happen.
A great city is that which has the greatest men and women.
Imagine a safe city with all the affordable housing we need, a city that uses its resources to help lift the marginalized up and into stability. This is the Portland I imagine. This is the Portland I dream about every single day.
The 1890s was a decade when life began to change in urban America. Modern conveniences that we now take for granted came into use; women’s roles became less restrictive; and San Francisco, a port city with influences from all over the world, was a lively place in which to reside.
I’ve very proud to be mayor of our great city. It’s a city with a heart and a soul. Chicago has a unique spirit. Our business community wants to give back.
A great city is not to be confounded with a populous one.
I came out of the old Second City in Chicago. Chicago actors are more hard-nosed. They’re tough on themselves and their fellow actors. They’re self-demanding.
When a sports team is doing well in a city that’s going through tough times like New Orleans, like Detroit, it bolsters this real sentiment of ‘we can get through this.’ And when you have that sentiment, it becomes more than feelings: It’s transported into action.
The dangers of TATP bombs can be seen in the case of Matthew Rugo and Curtis Jetton, 21-year-old roommates in Texas City, Texas. They didn’t have any bomb-making training and were manufacturing explosives in 2006 from concentrated bleach when their concoction blew up, killing Rugo and injuring Jetton.
I come from a city like St. Louis, where they consider themselves great baseball fans.
The thing about Paris, it’s a great city for wandering around and buying shoes and nursing a cafe au lait for hours on end and pretending you’re Baudelaire. But it’s not a city where you can work.
I was born Roman, and I’ll die Roman. I’ll never leave this team or my city.
Portland has all the accoutrements of a big city, but the heart and soul of it is a small town, so that creates an intimacy in a large environment.
There is nothing of any consequence in education, in the economy, in city planning, in social policy that does not concern black people.
The whole London football scene is now financially more powerful and ambitious than ever before. That reflects the city’s economic might and its multiculturalism. Now West Ham have a new , and Spurs and Chelsea will follow. And the London clubs have widened their areas of support.
Times have been tough, the economy has been tough. But I want to bring forward a fantastic manifesto for taking the city forwards.
As New York City kids, you lived fast and partied hard as teenagers – experiences that informed your design aesthetic.
Detroit is a great deli city. If only GM could learn from what the delis in Detroit are doing! The best rye bread anywhere – double-baked, crispy, warm rye that they serve their sandwiches with – and great corned beef. It’s a passionate deli town.
Los Angeles gives one the feeling of the future more strongly than any city I know of. A bad future, too, like something out of Fritz Lang‘s feeble imagination.
In 1964, when we first arrived in New York City, I remember vividly seeing the skyline of Manhattan, and our first proposal of 1964 was to wrap two lower Manhattan buildings. We never got permission.
To me… San Francisco is an ideal city, intellectually stimulating and naturally beautiful. The oceans and forests are close enough to refresh the spirit; the architecture is always exciting.
I have a love / hate relationship with the city of New Orleans, which is the strongest kind of relationship.
Frank is such a great visual storyteller, that if you study his artwork you see that his Sin City books are already the best movies never seen on the big screen.
London is the most important city in the world for restaurants.
A graphic representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.
As a society, we devalued farming as an occupation and encouraged the best students to leave the farm for ‘better’ jobs in the city. We emptied America’s rural counties in order to supply workers to urban factories.
I think when people think of Compton, of course, they always think of gangster rap. But if you ever had an opportunity to go to Compton, you would know that Compton is a beautiful city.
By the time we reached Virginia City I was considered a remarkable good shot and a fearless rider for a girl of my age.
Innovation hubs are going to be in cities focused on the industries and clients of that city. So in Houston, it’s focused on our industrial companies, particularly the energy sector, robotics, and automation.
Toting around a full orchestra on tour is very ambitious. I would consider doing a show now and then, like do a show at Radio City or Carnegie Hall with a full orchestra.
The origins of my career as a peace mediator can be found from my childhood years. I was born in the city of Viipuri, then still part of Finland. We lost Viipuri when the Soviet Union attacked my country. Along with 400,000 fellow Karelians, I became an eternally displaced person in the rest of Finland.
I like sundresses with cowboy boots, little shorts with big wedge heels and a big piece of turquoise. I also love classic, Old Hollywood romantic styles. I’m ‘country girl meets city girl‘ circa 1930.
My dad was the town drunk. Most of the time that’s not so bad; but New York City?
I grew up hearing stories about how my maternal grandfather had put himself through engineering school in New York City. He saved money by walking down to a gas station once a week to take a shower. When I applied to college, both education and investment value were important to me.
Until we’re educating every kid in a fantastic way, until every inner city is cleaned up, there is no shortage of things to do.
Growing up in the inner city, you might not see a lot of different career paths and different jobs.
My mother and father raised their eyebrows at first when I said I wanted to be an actor because I was in this industrial city. My dad had done a bit of boxing on the side, but he was a welder first and foremost. I was 17, and I said, ‘I want to be an actor.’ They worried it was a waste of time.
Look, architecture has a lot of places to hide behind, a lot of excuses. ‘The client made me do this.’ ‘The city made me do this.’ ‘Oh, the budget.’ I don’t believe that anymore.
I like Copenhagen, just because my shows there have been really good for some reason. Not that I love the city itself, but every time I play there it feels amazing. Pretty nice people there.
I went to Second City, where you learned to make the other actor look good so you looked good and National Lampoon, where you had to create everything out of nothing, and SNL, where you couldn’t make any mistakes, and you learned what collaboration was.
I grew up in the East Village, in Alphabet City, when it was a very dangerous neighborhood. To survive there, I had to learn to be a little bit invisible.
Born and raised in Paris, I am deeply attached to my city; we almost have half a century of love story together, where I have been truly completely faithful! The most beautiful city in the world is my city, yeepeeee!
We want to develop a technology that’s globally applicable, that’s not customized for a specific city or a specific country. The only way to do that is to be able to test every day in a diversity of environments.
Belfast is a city which, while not forgetting its past, is living comfortably with its present and looking forward to its future.
I love Navi Mumbai, and I am proud to be a part of this city. The city has always inspired me to aim higher.
My dad worked on ambulances for a while; my mother had a lot of different jobs with the city.
That’s great advertising when you can turn Chicago into a city you’d want to spend more than three hours in.
I moved to New York City from Texas in 2007, where I lived for two years. Before that, I lived in South Carolina for the majority of my life.
We have food deserts in our cities. We know that the distance you live from a supplier of fresh produce is one of the best predictors of your health. And in the inner city, people don’t have grocery stores. So we have to figure out a way of getting supermarkets and farmers markets into the inner cities.
Delhi means everything to me. This city has given me everything, and I love it.
Rome was a poem pressed into service as a city.
A city building, you experience when you walk; a suburban building, you experience when you drive.
When you a ghetto star, when you a hood star, you gonna take care of your grandmother, your mother. When you on that next level, you gotta take care of the city, the streets.
I’ve always had strong ties with Delhi, and I do stay in touch with my friends and periodically visit the capital. I started my schooling at St. Columbus High School before I went to Mayo College. Delhi, for me, is a historical city with all its beautiful monuments.
College is a magic time. Yes, you’re young and fickle, but you want to be part of this college experience… Then you graduate from that. You have your first job, moving to a new city.
I was originally going to join ‘Mike & Mike’ in New York City, but then that move fell through, and there was a vacancy on ‘First Take,’ so now I am excited to be able to do both.
Singapore is one of my favorite races, and the city is great.
Justice must be done in investigating the tragic death of Mr. Freddie Gray. His family deserves our deepest sympathy and respect for their loss, and our admiration for their courage in calling us, as a city, to act as our better selves.
Every city is always changing, on its own trajectory.
And I come here as a daughter, raised on the South Side of Chicago – by a father who was a blue-collar city worker and a mother who stayed at home with my brother and me.
It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.
In city planning, there is no limit to be fixed.
I’ve enjoyed appearing in Atlantic City. East Coast audiences are a bit brighter than Las Vegas audiences. I think most entertainers will tell you the same thing. The East Coast audiences are more perceptive – especially when it comes to a performer with a theatrical background.
There’s an uncanniness to living in Los Angeles, from the way you move through the city to the moments of feeling familiarity or deja vu, like you‘ve been somewhere or you know something when you really don’t.
In Brussels, you are able to have a lot of appointments in a day. In Paris, you can have one, two, maybe three, but you spend all your time on the road, in the car or in the suburbs. In Brussels, everything is easy. It’s not a very big city, and the people are very quiet and warm.
As a developer, it’s a great feeling knowing you have made an impact. There’s also a lot of responsibility that goes with that: you have to really put the city’s needs first. It’s not all about making money.
As mayor of Milwaukee, I’ve had many developers come and many businesses come and have asked for financial assistance from the city, and my questions have always been: how many jobs are we talking about and are these family-supporting jobs.
I love San Francisco so much. I call it the Emerald City and have been coming here since 1992. I have a few old friends that live here, and my aunt and uncle live in Oakland. I think it’s a magical city – it’s big, sexy and very ‘cosmo’ with a small-town feel.
In city hall and in local government, you have to get things done without drama.
Fort Worth is friendly; it’s still a Texas town. It’s the most Texas city in Texas.
After college, I knew I wanted to work in comedy, so the first thing I did was go to where the comedy was. I moved from Charlottesville to Chicago, because that’s where The Second City and Improv Olympics are. You have to go wherever you need to go to study what interests you.
hooting for ‘Savdhaan India’ in Mathura made me realise that no matter what place you come from be it a holy city, crime still prevails.
In the city a funeral is just an interruption of traffic; in the country it is a form of popular entertainment.
I taught for 17 years in an inner city comprehensive schools.
If I was making the decision normally, with my heart, I’d never leave Celtic. My life was great. I loved the city. I loved the people. I loved the club. I had a wonderful life. If you think of all those things, you’d never move.
What I like about New York City is nobody cares. If they do, they don’t ever approach. They just give you a ‘What’s up?’ and that’s it.
You cannot deal with a city if it’s not socially integrated.
You learn just by trying and experimenting. By the time I was 14, I had my own comic strip in the Kansas City paper.
I think the city isn’t talked about enough, there are not enough people championing Birmingham. When I was at university in Manchester I wasn’t a fan, I was a bit down on my home city. But as I’ve got older I love living here. It’s easy to get around the country to gigs, and it’s a calming, friendly city.
I love the book ‘Devil in the White City.’
Times have been tough, the economy has been tough. But I want to bring forward a fantastic manifesto for taking the city forwards.
I mean, people need to remember without the grassroots, Ronald Reagan probably doesn’t become president of the United States of America and he worked the grassroots on a regular basis during his political career and especially between the years of 1976 and 1980 after the loss in Kansas City.
You could put all of Rev. Jeremiah Wright‘s angry sermons on to one loop. You could put that loop up on the big screen at Radio City Music Hall and let it play there 24 hours a day, seven days a week and Barack Obama will still emerge as the next president of the United States.
Every day, in every city and town across the country, police officers are performing vital services that help make their communities safer.
If a sanctuary city means that our police department does not enforce federal immigration laws, then we are one. But declaring yourself a ‘sanctuary city’ also signals to a lot of people that you are protecting hard-core criminals, which I don’t, and I don’t believe in.
Whether you live in a city or a small town, and whether you drive a car, take the bus or ride a train, at some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian.
I was wholeheartedly attracted to the conservative atmosphere that permeated the city of Washington.
Most people, if you live in a big city, you see some form of schizophrenia every day, and it’s always in the form of someone homeless. ‘Look at that guy – he’s crazy. He looks dangerous.’ Well, he’s on the streets because of mental illness. He probably had a job and a home.
‘One by Two’ is a film about two people who live in the same city and do certain things that affect each other’s lives. Yet, they are strangers. It’s difficult to put the film in any particular genre or box.
I love Paris for the million reasons that everybody loves the city. It’s an incredibly romantic and beautiful place.
As we look forward to freedom, the shining city on the hill and the best days of America lying ahead, it is the men and women in uniform who protect, defend and make us proud to whom we should look and give thanks every night.
We will build the city from scratch. It will be drone-friendly and a center for the development of robotics. We want to create something different. Neom is a place for dreamers who want to create something new in the world, something extraordinary.
As the daughter of immigrants, growing up in New York City, you are either at the table or on the menu.
We should concentrate our work not only to a separated housing problem but housing involved in our daily work and all the other functions of the city.
City came in strongly for me, put their cards on the table, and what I have found out since is that every game in England is a privilege – the atmosphere, the fans, the interest that surrounds it. Every time I go out on the pitch, I know I’ve made the right decision.
If people watch ‘Broad City’ very closely, we just drop lines about people we love, just to say we like them.
When we look at the investment decisions into the city of Compton, the small business community and global corporations and retailers and all of those types of services that decide to come into the community to serve it, they look at the perception, how does the brand work with the local community.
It’s time to make America safe again. It’s time to make America one again. I know it can be done because I did it by changing New York City from ‘the crime capital of America’ to – according to the FBI – the safest large city in America. What I did for New York City, Donald Trump will do for America.
I’m so much fun. Every kid wishes I was their grandpa! I’m the Motor City Madgramps.
One of the great things about Sydney is that it has a great acceptance of everyone and everything. It’s an incredibly tolerant city, a city with a huge multicultural basis.
After the Berlin Wall came down I visited that city and I will never forget it. The abandoned checkpoints. The sense of excitement about the future. The knowledge that a great continent was coming together. Healing those wounds of our history is the central story of the European Union.
The one thing that you simply have to remember all the time that you are there, is that Hollywood is an oriental city. As long as you do that you might survive. If you try to equate it with anything else you’ll perish.
I attended less than two years of Conservatory in Mexico City.
In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.
This city will be chocolate at the end of the day. This city will be a majority-African-American city. It’s the way God wants it to be. You can’t have New Orleans no other way.
When I moved to New York City in 1965, I wanted to be in theater. I was following my Ethel Barrymore dream. But I was too young to be Ethel.
Miami Beach is a completely interesting hybrid because it is, on the one hand, a resort and, on the other hand, a real city. This condition of city and water on two sides I think is really amazing. And in the heart of that city, it has put an enormous convention center, an enormous physical presence.
Life is one long decay, no? There’s a lot of beauty in it. Like the patina in an old city.
I was born on December 30, 1930 in Ningbo, a city on the east coast of China with a rich culture and over seven thousand years of history. Although it was a tumultuous age in China when I was a child, I was lucky enough to have completed a good education from primary to middle school.
I would like to run for the mayor of the city of Chicago. That has always been an aspiration of mine even when I was in the House of Representatives.
