First Encounter

Freeman Alley

"Most Americans loathe New York City at first encounter. The filth and squalor, the graffiti and noise, the hysteria and violence, the decadence and outrageous expense——these impressions smite the sensibilities of visitors from the more orderly and well-tended cities of the west. But it's all clever camouflage—-designed to keep out the fainthearted—as any New Yorker knows."
Katherine Neville, Calculated Risk
