Two Horizons

"Manhattan is an island, and so she has two horizons—the architectural horizon, impermanent and stony, and the eternal horizon, constantly changing, that is created when water and sky work together in midair. It may be that the secret of Manhattan's hold over us is lost somewhere between those two horizons, the one hard and vulnerable, the other vague, shifting, and implacable."
Maeve Brennan, The Long-Winded Lady
