Popular Imagination

Manhattan (Pixabay)

"From almost the city’s very beginnings as a Dutch trading outpost, New York has seen itself, in defiance of its place at the edge of a continent, as centre, goal and culmination – New York is, in the popular imagination, the place everywhere else aspires to be."

Jenny Hendrix, TLS
