Romantic City

"New York is, in my opinion, a romantic city, not in spite of its brutality and greed, but precisely because of them. Because of its brutality and its greed, its shrillness, its cult of catastrophes, its constant sacrifice of the past and the future to the present moment, its commercial organization of crime and its criminal organization of business, its contradictory climate, excessive and incontrollable; because of its eagerness to climb the sky making each year a taller building than the others and, in summary, because of its unlimitedness."
Julio Camba, La ciudad autom├ítica
