"We didn’t have a shower in our office, and Nancy would let us come over. She lived on Eighth and 23rd. It was a nice old basement apartment—I think her mother was paying for it. She’d make us scrambled eggs and talk. I liked Nancy. She could be very, very nice. Nancy had a passion for rock and roll that very few people had and she knew everything about any album. Let me tell you, Nancy was no more messed up than anyone else on the scene. We were all a little disturbed." - Legs McNeil, staffer for Punk Magazine
"Nancy was highly intelligent and extremely aware. She could spot someone conning her from a mile away. She had good insight into people. She was aware of the phonies, the fakers and the users. She did display that wild, crazed behavior but that wasn’t her total being. I saw men and women just push past her and not acknowledging her and would instead talk to Sid. I think a lot of her nastiness and temper tantrums were rooted in her being shunned by those around her." -Victor Colicchio
