Moneyed Gloss

The Standard Hotel

"The immensely rich history that this city wore so proudly and loudly on its streets and in its different neighborhoods is disappearing under a bland layer of gentility, servility, and newly moneyed gloss. New York will be recognizable only by its landmarks, not its vibrant and historic mix."
Maggie Wrigley, "Love and Loss in New York," Suburbanization of New York
