Modern Babylon

"In New York I have always felt I was at the center of the world, in a modern Babylon, a sort of Borgesian aleph with representation of all the languages, religions and cultures of the planet, and from which, as from a giant heart to the extremities, there circulate to the globe all fashions and vices, values and nonvalues, usages, customs, music, images and prototypes resulting from the incredible mixtures in this city."
Mario Vargas Llosa, The New York Times
