What Is It?

 8,550,405 personalities and stories roam the bustling streets, skyscrapers and city lights of New York. Quoted is an unfiltered take on the city through the eyes of some of these brave, warm and weird New Yorkers. 

Every issue of Quoted intimately profiles 10 New Yorkers in their homes. Through unedited narratives, photographs, video content and recommendations, we invite you backstage to experience the real New York.

How It Started

Rolf Arne Leer, is an entrepreneur and journalist from Norway with a passion for traveling, storytelling and meeting new people. He immediately fell in love with New York through his encounters with locals, each of whom shared unique insights into what the city means to them and why they call it home.


Rolf Arne started visiting New Yorkers in their homes to conduct interviews and to gather their perspectives. First featured in the Huffington Post, Rolf began to gain followers from around the world with his innovative, unfiltered portraits.


He decided to share these insights through his own publication and Quoted was born.
