Shining City of Our Dreams

Gantry Plaza and Manhattan skyline

"The romance of New York is always something that has recently passed away; so vast and clamorous is the actual city that enchantment kicks in only over a distance of time and space. From Henry James to Dos Passos and Fitzgerald to the present, the shining city of our dreams is always located a decade, or an ocean, away."
Jay McInerney, New York Magazine
