No City for Poor People

Fifth Avenue

"New York—this is no city for poor people. Their presence ruins everything, everything. Dread—that is the noxious air around them. The rich in their pyramids have a nice time. All the objects of eternity are at hand, lest they down the years need something remembered or forgotten."
Elizabeth Hardwick, Sleepless Nights
