Manhattan skyline seen from Brooklyn Heights

"Manhattan is the tower, Brooklyn the garden. Manhattan is Faustian will, Brooklyn is domestic life. Manhattan preens, disseminates opinions; Brooklyn is Uncle Vanya schlepping in the background to support his peacock relative."
Michael W. Robbins and Wendy Palitz, Brooklyn: A State of Mind
