Xanadu

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir

"New York was no mere city. It was instead an infinitely romantic notion, the mysterious nexus of all love and money and power, the shining and the perishable dream itself. To think of 'living' there was to reduce the miraculous to the mundane; one does not 'live' at Xanadu."
Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem: Essays (FSG Classics)
