Wonderful Anarchy

East Village

One thing I like about New York is that it's ugly. There's a wonderful anarchy. New York has all the ugliness and terror of the 20th century. But if you look closely, all the beauty and sublimity is there, too. All the contradictions. Everything that's nice about this century and everything that's awful is here."
