Dwelling of the Very Rich

East Village

"He thought there was something wrong about a city that had become largely a dwelling of the very rich and the people who serviced their needs. He missed the city of his boyhood, then the greatest port, the largest manufacturing entrepĂ´t on earth. He recalled it as exciting and comprehensible in a way that  the current city was not—a place that now shipped only digits, that made nothing but money."
Michael Gruber, The Return
