"Thanks to movies and TV, magazines, the news, books — iconography in general  all of us, even natives, carry a mental suitcase stuffed with received images of the Big Apple. That’s true of children, too, for whom the city’s superlatives (biggest, loudest, tallest) hold a special fascination. You might even say that New York is to other American cities what dinosaurs are to other animals  minus, one hopes, the extinction event."
Bruce Handy, The New York Times
