Magnificent and Maddening

"Visiting New York is supposed to not be an emotional experience, right? Manhattan doesn't 'do' feelings and yet, somehow, when you momentarily lose yourself in the crowded sidewalks or look up from your slice of damn-is-that-good pizza to see the mirrored mass of the Freedom Tower you do feel different than you would almost anyplace else. You may not be a movie star, but being in that New York state of mind means being a part of the most magnificent and maddening metropolis in the world and your provisional participation is part and parcel of the magic."
Anthony Grant, The Malibu Times
