New York Spring

Riverside Drive

"From the Battery there comes a breath of the sea; from Westchester, a scent of the country; and when the two unite the result is intoxication. At such a time the strugglers of Manhattan are kept to their daily tasks only by their native instinct to herd. It is certain that if anyone of them should become temporarily insane, pull on his coat, and start for the Catskills the city would be depopulated in thirty minutes. For if ever spring is spring, it is so in New York."
Rex Stout, Target Practice
