The Idea of New York

Empire State Building

"When he first arrived in New York, he thought he could achieve whatever he wanted. The city wasn't a place as much as an idea, he thinks -- escape, freedom, such potential. Now it seems as if all he's been trying to do is hold on to the place when it's the idea that's gone."
Adam Langer, Ellington Boulevard: A Novel in A-Flat
