Stands Alone

Empire State Building

"First New York was a sort of provincial capital, bigger and richer than Manchester or Marseilles, but not much different in its essential spirit. Then, after the war, it became one among a half a dozen world cities. Today it has the appearance of standing alone, as the center of culture in the part of the world that still tries to be civilized."
Malcolm Cowley, Think Back on Us
