|Tourist brochures in Columbus Circle|
"You could, as Mini Auntie told me once, spend ten years in Britain and not feel British, but after spending ten months in New York, you were a New Yorker, an original settler, and in no time you would be zipping uptown, downtown, crosstown, wherever, strutting, jaywalking, dispensing directions to tourists like a mandarin. "You see,' you'd say, 'it's quite simple: the city's like a grid."
H. M. Naqvi, Home Boy
