I lived in Midtown back [in the early aughts], and I’d never do that again. It’s byzantine… you walk outside, and I hear the Rolling Stones song, ‘Here Comes Your 19th Nervous Breakdown.’ It’s hard to be Zen there. [On the other hand,] it’s too Zen in L.A. I feel completely blessed to have the best of both worlds. There are things I love and appreciate in New York — the culture, the metropolitan aspect, taking public transportation. The museums, the theater. And New Yorkers. There’s nothing I love more than a really indignant New Yorker walking through our shot who says ‘I don’t care what you fuckers are doing, I’m going to my building!’ They’re so righteous about it.
