|Garbage cans on Canal St.|
"New York is no place for a civilized man. Nothing good has ever come out of it, and nothing good ever will come out of it. It degrades, it vulgarizes, it dehydrates, it demolishes, it belittles—it is a sewer, a cesspool, a garbage can."
H.L. Mencken, quoted in Articulating Biographical Sketches of Diminutive Luminaries
