Seeking vivid descriptions of cities
December 31, 2013 6:33 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for vivid written description of cities (real or fictional) that are especially accurate or perceptive. Interested in any written (i.e. passages from books, magazines, possibly song lyrics; not looking for videos) description . I'm more interested in descriptions that capture the "feel" of a city, as oppose to something clinical or factual. Especially looking for passages where the author has strong emotions (positive or otherwise) about the city in question. Length-wise, anything from a few sentences to a few paragraphs. Thanks AskMefi!
