Floating City

Manhattan skyline

"The city of New York is to-day the same great eddy of the mixed human elements of the whole world that it was when the Duke of York gave it its name. A vast impersonal floating city, rising and falling with the general tide of human life throughout the world, America is no more responsible for its good or its evil than any other country."
M.D. Conway, Fraser's Magazine
