Ruler of the Modern World

"New York is overpowering. I would
 never have believed that any impression could have had the power to so disorient me. I am staggered by the monstrous impact of this city. By contrast London is almost provincial. Here is the modern Rome, the colossal world capital, the city that has the appearance of being the center and the ruler of the modern world."

Harry Kessler, The Red Count
