New York at a Distance

Staten Island Ferry

"Oh, I wished that it were possible to know New York in that way only — as a masterpiece wrought for the illumination of the sight, a splendor lifting aloft and shedding its radiance like a searchlight, making one big and great with feeling. Oh, that I should never draw nearer to descend into its precipitous gorges, where visions are broken and shattered and one becomes one of a million, average, ordinary, insignificant."
Claude McKay, A Long Way From Home
