Thousand New Yorks

Downtown Manhattan

othing in New York is isolated: the bridges lead to the streets and the streets to the parks, and around the parks are the homes of the rich and behind them the shops of the poor; Wall Street is cheek by jowl with Chinatown. There are, to be sure, a thousand New Yorks— or ten million—one for every human being who lives in the city or comes to it."
