Woody Allen has discovered the secret behind his long love affair with New York – he needs the bright lights and loud noises of the city to sleep at night.
The veteran filmmaker only discovered Manhattan’s grip on him when he bought an estate in star-studded retreat The Hamptons, on New York State’s Long Island – and hated it.
Allen explained: “I bought a very, very beautiful house in the Hamptons, and I spent over a year fixing it up. I put in trees, I changed the roof; I mean, I did an incredible job. Then I went out there one night and I slept in it, and I never came back.”
He added: “The city is so full of chaos, and the chaos is, for many people, pleasurable. Recently I was living in a sublet on Madison Avenue, and every night you would hear ambulances and sirens. It was truly a lullaby.”
