International Settlement

"New York is unique as a great metropolis in that, while it unquestionably has its own characteristic life, this life does not focus the life of the rest of the country, as London is the distillation of all English character and custom. But I had a sense this leg of my journey of returning from America and entering an international settlement."
Alistair Cooke, The American Home Front
