Oz

Manhattan skyline

"Even being in New York, the actual place, I found the idea of New York so wonderful that I could only imagine it as some other place, greater than any place that would let me sleep in it -- a distant constellation of lights I had not yet been allowed to visit. I had arrived in Oz only to think, Well, you don't live in Oz, do you?"
Adam Gopnik, Through the Children's Gate: A Home in New York (Vintage)
