Night is Abolished

Third Avenue

"Night is abolished. . . .We have seen restaurants full at dawn— with people who will be at work four hours later. New York is a town that never halts, never slacks off. Subways and street-cars run up and down all night long, twenty-four hours a day. . . . Everything goes fast. . . .New York is a perpetual thunderstorm."
Paul Morand, Mirror for Gotham
