Little Italy

"In all the vast grid of the city, with layer upon layer of apartments, office buildings, downtown cafés; on the rebellious streets of Greenwich Villäge, or in the dire districts to the east where marginal individuals hung on amid the unfriendly squalor of aging Jews, Italians, Poles and Hungarians—wherever I looked, there was no place for me. New York was full, it squeezed me out."
Paul Zweig, Departures
