London, New York and Paris (the sex of the city)

I randomly stumbled upon this quote on TheLondonWord blog which made me smile…

Cities have sexes: London is a man, Paris a woman, and New York a well-adjusted transsexual.

I have never read anything by Angela Carter before but if she’s this amusingly perceptive I may have to do so… or alternatively move to New York

(now where’s my high heels?)
