  • Quotes

    • Giuliani: I never saw myself as any different than another New Yorker, because that's who I was. I was born in Brooklyn and I lived in Queens, and I went to school in the Bronx, and I lived in Manhattan, and I spent a lot of time in Staten Island. So I felt very much a part of the city. And even when people would say to me later, "You showed great strength," I would always say, because it's true, that I just reflected the strength of the people of the city.
