A Playground For Dreamers


New York is where everybody dreams: travelers, visitors, immigrants, Americans from other cities, poets, entrepreneurs, tourists, artists, actresses, New Yorkers, filmmakers, rainmakers. Dreamers are the ones who make this city the greatest city in the world.


You can learn a new thing every single day, on every single corner – in more than one language. By the way, there are 800 different languages spoken in New York City (particularly in Queens), which means you have to learn how to deal with and learn from multiple cultural backgrounds. Important advice: fuggedabout (forget about) this weird thing called "perfect English." Not even Americans understand it in New York.

It's not an easy city. When Frank sang "If you can make it there, you can make it everywhere," well, he was right. He would just also add in case someone was complaining about failing: "Buddy, stop crying. I never said it would be easy." Also, never expect normal in New York. Here is the place for craziness – both the good and the bad ones. That happens just because the Empire State Building is not actually a building. It's a gigantic lightning rod attracting crazy people and dreamers from all over the world to this amazing city.

The thing is: if you are resilient enough to live in a tough environment and become stronger and stronger – for making your dreams come true – you are in the right place, and New York is your playground. Just keep walking, enjoy the incredible views, and make it happen.


Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
