Highwaymen on 9/11

I'm from Boston, not NY, although I brought the family down here to Florida 20 years ago.
We have a lot in common, people from NY and Boston.
We don't really hate each other, it's just a sort of competitive game we all play.
Yesterday I saw this video for the first time. It's nothing short of amazing.

 I've always liked this song, I know it by heart, and I've always liked Paul Simon.
The lyrics are special to me personally, because I like to think of myself as a fighter.
Judge me as you wish, too stubborn or maybe just persistent, whatever.
This little art market, Florida's highwaymen art has seen its ups and downs, has had its fair share of folks jumping on the bandwagon in good times, and bailing out when it softened and crashed along with real estate due to the economy in 2010 and 2011.
It began it's recovery in 2012 and is now gaining momentum.
Supply and demand markets, particularly collectibles markets go through cycles.
Thankfully, it's almost full speed ahead, cycling up once more.
And I'm still here.

Yes, I remain. Sure as Florida rain, I remain.
