Immigrant Ship

South Street Seaport (Pixabay)

"The island of Manhattan is a gigantic metaphoric model of the compression of an immigrant ship that has moored and never left. Every apartment is like a berth. Every square metre of street is deck. The sky scraping offices are the bridge. Harlem and other areas are the hold."
John Berger, About Looking
