July 9 – Sometimes
Sometimes, when it's hot and the subway is crowded and people on the sidewalk are too slow or too fast and a brown layer of smog hangs heavy on the horizon, this is an absolutely terrible city to live in.
But sometimes the air is fresh and cool, and you walk instead of taking transit, and yesterday's rain cleared the clouds and left a broad cerulean sky, and if you squint your eyes just right you can pretend you're somewhere else altogether.
On days like that, this is a wonderful place to be.
