Unremarkable New York

"As New York City enters the third decade of the twenty-first century, it is in imminent danger of becoming something it has never been before: unremarkable. It is approaching a state where it will no longer be a significant cultural entity but the world's largest gated community, with a few cupcake shops here and there. For the first time in its history, New York is--well, boring."
Kevin Baker, The Fall of a Great American City
