New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast is a city person. She grew up in an apartment building in Brooklyn, N.Y., and though she moved to the suburbs as an adult when she was pregnant with her second child, she never stopped loving the grit and excitement of New York City.

“Just about every street in Manhattan has that kind of density of visual information,” she says. “It’s just fun. I like looking at it. Everything seems to suggest stories.”

She stopped by Fresh Air to talk about her new book, Going Into Town: A Love Letter to New York check out the conversation here.
