|Peter Stuyvesant statue|
"New York is of in four ways:
It is the New York of 1622, with the Indians around, and its shape then:
which it still has.
It is the New York of Peter Stuyvesant.
It is the New York of James J. Walker.
It is the New York or someone who came here from New Jersey this morning
and left this afternoon."
Eli Siegel, New York Is, In More Than One Way
