A Matter of Taste

East 14th

"If you tell a New Yorker that his metropolis has filthy streets which are continually torn up, that it swarms with aliens, that it is heterogeneous and has no civic solidarity, he will frankly admit all this without resentment, adding only: 'Well, after all, the place suits me.'"
Harry Thurston Peck, The New Baedeker: Being Casual Notes of an Irresponsible Traveller
