City of Survivors

Riverside Park

"New Yorkers have learned to cope with life's worst vicissitudes, and this nil admirari attitude, they say, is one reason why New York considers itself a city of survivors. Only the fittest make it here. The unfit, having tried and failed, go home to Peoria, where they do just fine."
Stephen Birmingham, Life at the Dakota
