Night is Abolished

Third Avenue


"Night is abolished. . . .We have seen restaurants full at dawn— with people who will be at work four hours later. New York is a town that never halts, never slacks off. Subways and street-cars run up and down all night long, twenty-four hours a day. . . . Everything goes fast. . . .New York is a perpetual thunderstorm."
Paul Morand, Mirror for Gotham

Magical and Enigmatic

Dumbo


"New York is better than pretty—it's energetic. It's magical and enigmatic and the streets are paved with the footsteps and successes of hundreds of thousands of people who've walked them before me. Made it through some tough shite before me."
Lyla Payne, Living the Dream
