Bette Midler On Her Early Years In New York City:

Bette Midler On Her Early Years In New York City: “I was very anxious to get to the city (New York). I didn’t notice that there was anything wrong with it. The first month that I was here was when they had the blackout. I thought it was fabulous. And, right after that, in January, the subway went on strike. And I was living down here and I had to go up to 119th Street to get to work every day. I was working at Columbia University ”“ typing. So it was like this incredible hassle. But I just thought it was a lark. The first four years I was here (in New York) I thought the city was just unbelievable, but now I’m getting a little tired. It’s hard on an older person. I mean if you’re not 19 you might as well forget it.” (Zoo World, October 25, 1973)
