Ethnic Makeup

Chinatown (Pixabay)

"Culture and politics in New York are based on premises not quite shared
 by the nation generally. When other Americans speak of New York as being different, something other than America, they often have in mind its size, density, big buildings, and harried lifestyles. But they seem also to have in mind a special quality of the city's culture and politics, perhaps associated with its ethnic makeup."

Thomas Bender, The Unfinished City
