Wacky Dreams


"More than any other city. New York exists at once as a city of symbols and associations, literary and artistic, and as a city of real things. This is an emotional truth, of course—New York is a city of wacky dreams and of disillusioning realities."
David Gopnik, Through the Children's Gate

Capsized

Pier 25

Maeve Brennan, The Long-Winded Lady
