Secret Adoration

Park Avenue

"New York is, in no small sense, America. Other towns and cities may publicly scoff her, down in their hearts they slavishly imitate her, her store fronts, her fashions, her hotel and her theater customs, her policemen, even her white-winged street cleaners. They publicly laugh at her — down in their hearts they secretly adore her."
Edward Hungerford, The Personality of American Cities
