EN: I can never stop being proud of this city. I wasn't born here, but my family moved to New York just in time to experience it all - 09/11 , two hurricane , an earthquake, the blackout. And after each episode I watched with admiration as the city rose to its feet. Recently, a friend was sharing her experience with me after visiting New York, and what impressed her the most were the people - she told me it felt as if the City is charged with some special energy. She was right on point - New Yorkers bring a special power to the mix of yellow cabs, smoldering summer heat, intolerable winter winds and non-stop flow of human and automobile traffic. The people is what makes this city so special, because so many of them are heroes at heart. They are the people who jump on the train tracks to rescue kittens. They are the people who look you in the eye and smile. They are the people who run into the burning Twin Towers to save others, knowing they may never come out again. This city is full of simple acts of human bravery, and, right before the anniversary of one of the biggest tragedies we lived thorough, I want to say thank you - to New York and New Yorkers, for teaching me how to be stronger. How to be brave. How to overcome anything life throws at me. Thank you, NYC.

RU: Я никогда не перестану гордится этим городом. Так получилось, что с тех пор как мы сюда приехали, мы успели застать все - 9/11, два урагана, землетрясение, blackout. И после каждого эпизода я с восхищением наблюдала как город поднимался на ноги. Недавно знакомая сказала мне, посетив Нью Йорк, что тут какая-то особенная энергетика. И знаете - это потому что тут живут непобедимые люди, герои. Люди которые прыгнут на рельсы чтобы спасти котят. Люди которые смотрят тебе в глаза в метро и улыбаются. Люди которые побегут в горящие Близнецы чтобы спасти других, зная что уже оттуда не выйдут. Этот город, своими примерами, сделал меня более сильной. Более храброй. Спасибо, Нью Йорк.
