New York History

"Only New York itself can write and understand its history. Biographies are failures. There is enough happening in any one person in five minutes of his day to occupy a biographer an entire lifetime. One would have to exist longer than Methuselah to describe and understand what happens one noon hour in New York."
Jean Toomer, A Jean Toomer Reader
