"In everything, New York is the city that is different. When considering Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, it is customary to speak of what their people think or are or do, but no one ever speaks thus of the people of New York, but only of the city itself. For the city is so much greater than its people ! With New York, the city makes the people; elsewhere, the people make the city."
Robert Shackleton, The Book of New York
