Memory and Amnesia


"The city is constantly being tugged between the forces of memory and amnesia. Every un-renovated tenement is an offense to someone's sense of progress, each new building a desecration of someone's childhood. We fret because the city is changing too quickly and also not nearly fast enough. But, outside occasional periods of disenchantment, one constant remains: New York is not quite ample enough for all the people who want to be here."
