Grace and Gaiety

Washington Square Park (Pexels)

"New York itself is a miracle which a large book would not be sufficient to explain. When I stepped ashore, then I thought I was in a larger Rotterdam; when I found my way to Broadway, it seemed as though I was in Paris, and that Paris had taken to business. There were quaintness, grace and gaiety, brightness and grimness, all about."
G. J. Holyoake, quoted in Illustrated New York: The Metropolis of To-day
