Atomic Collider

"This city will come back when it’s once again a magnet that draws people in; the electric, the eccentric, the hucksters, the hustlers, the immigrants, the schemers and the refugees. All 8 million-plus people, and, we hope, plenty more, pack in like sardines across the city’s square miles — in offices, on stages, streets, sidewalks, in restaurants, hospitals and hallways of high-rises. What happens next is the human equivalent of an atomic collider, the machine that speeds up tiny particles and sends them smashing into each other. That collision creates energy."
