Air Age

"The skies of New York are almost never silent or still, and on a fine day they seem to be alive with the streaks of jets. Aesthetically the air age suits the place: its vast brilliant skies receive the vapour trails like canvases before the brush of an abstractionist, and the svelte forms of the jets complement its architecture. New York is the only great city I know where these machines look altogether at home – not intrusive, nor anachronistic, nor impertinent, nor even remarkable."
Jan Morris, The Great Port
