Bowie, on Manhattan

David Bowie writes about living in New York City:

I’m here most of the year now. I leave only if work demands it. (I’ve read the rumors about how I have houses elsewhere, but this is it.) I am not a secretive guy, but I am quite private. I live as a citizen pure and simple. I don’t go for the disguise thing—I’ve never found it necessary, at least not since my real hair color grew in years ago. I suppose wearing jeans is the nearest I get to confounding expectations.

His thoughts on The Strand are dead-on: “it’s impossible to find the book you want, but you always find the book you didn’t know you wanted.” (Via TMN.)
