I've just returned home on the red-eye, ruined for other cities.
I've been in Seattle and loved exploring the Central Library, designed by Rem
Koolhaas, but I always feel slightly out of place in West Coast pearls like
Seattle and San Francisco. The caffeine never seems to quite kick in out there,
and for me there's a jarring disconnect between Starbucks gleam and Skid Row
Whaddaya want? Give me New
York, where a fine grit covers everything.
