Tag Archives: overheard in NYC


Every New Yorker is a world unto himself.   Arrogant enough to live out loud while understanding their ultimate insignificance enough to assume nobody’s really listening.  But I am.  I always am because I am endlessly fascinated by the words people use.  By how they talk to one another.  By what they choose to say.

This is the first in a a series of such expressions I’ve overheard while riding a train, a bus or walking down the street.  Some of them ridiculous, some wise, some touching…but all of them part of the cacophony of humanity that this wonderful city orchestrates.
