One day you will wake up and the whole city will be brand new, like a snake shedding its skin. What was once familiar - a street, a face, a feeling - no longer attaches itself to a memory. Friends will become strangers. Strangers will become lovers. 'Home' will once again be a vague notion you chase but can't hold on to. New York will feel like magic and decay at the same time. And you'll look in the mirror and think,
When did I grow up?
