Scary Notion

Coney Island - Stillwell Avenue subway station

"Think how just the notion of New York scares people, how it is the City of Dreadful Night for some and Fun City for others. Like any huge city, New York is many things: Babylon, Xanadu, a jungle, a horror, a pleasure, a snake pit, a nuisance."
Paul Theroux, The Best American Travel Writing 2001
